Moving the Dainty Dinah Statue on 18th December 2013
Ingram's contracted by Durham County Council to move The Dainty Dinah Statue from The Civic Centre, Chester-Le-Street to The Mall at Morrisons Super Market in Chester-le-Street. The site which Morrisons was built on is the old site of George Horner's Chocolate factory established 1911 to 1961. The Dainty Dinah brand was introduced in 1914, many ladies in Chester-le-Street at the time stated they were the original face used.
Although 1/2 tonne in weight and made from concrete / steel rods and completed with a glazed finish, the statue was still fragile enough to require a purpose made wooded crate to be specially built by Ingram's to house the statue for the duration of the move.
The delicate operation took 4 of Ingram's operative staff, 3 hours using the necessary specialised equipment to then move the valuable statue from its present home to its new permanent home.

I can confirm the Dainty Dinah (Statue) was sucessfully relocated to the Morrison's Mall in Cheaster-Le-Street at approximately 12.15pm today. Can I just add my thanks to Malcolm's team for their role in completing this. They were very professional and provided great assistance to get the job done, they worked hard and went the extra mile to get this sorted.
