A statue which will mark the centenary of World War One will be installed in Clevedon, raising cash for charity.
North Somerset Council will buy a pair of soldier silhouette statues from forces charity Remembered to honour those who fell in the war.
The charity has launched its There But Not There campaign, which hopes to see the sacrifices of fallen soldiers honoured.
One silhouette will be installed at the council’s Castlewood base in Clevedon, and a second statue will be placed at Weston Town Hall, costing £750 each.
The 100th anniversary of the end of the war will be marked on Armistice Day – November 11.
A decision notice, which is due to be signed by the council’s armed forces champion Peter Bryant, said: “The two silhouettes will add a further element to the commemorative activities taking place across North Somerset where there are strong forces links.”
