The first glimpse of Verity provoked hundreds of comments on the Journal's Facebook page:
Sam Turner: I could think of better things to waste money on it's bloody awful!
Darren Scott: If it gets more visitors into Ilfracombe that's got to be a good thing. Nice to see someone trying to do something as the council seem to just want to knock things down.
Jo Williams: not impressed by this to be honest, seagulls will love it I'm sure :)

Kerry Mordan: It'll be amazing. Thank goodness the modern thinkers won the day. I look forward to visiting once she is in place.
Gracie Emily Davis: Its ugly, and set's the WRONG impression for our town!
Brendan Ashford: Damien has probably done more for Ilfracombe than any of us put together! We need to support things like.
Sean McCarthy: Oh my god how awful... way to go on how to ruin a picturesque harbour.
Rupert Ellingham: Nice to read the positive thoughts. This could be a lead to others investing in the social good of Ilfracombe. There are a lot of things happening for Ilfracombe behind the scenes.
Helen Hunt: Sums up the town perfectly - Unmarried mums on the dole!!!
Ashley Madmonkey Halliwell: The idea behind it and everything is great and what it will do for the town, but I bet you would get more positive attention from a bronze giant Pacman.
