Arnold naked woman shower poster is up for auction to raise cash for council charity

Bookmark

A life-size poster of a naked woman showering which was removed from the side of a building in Arnold following orders from the council is now up for auction.

The picture had been placed on the side of The Bathroom Store on Arnot Hill Road, but shop owner Sam Collins said he was told to take it down by Gedling Borough Council after they reported it to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA).

The poster has now been placed on an auction site, with proceeds from the sale going to the Giving for Gedling charity, which was set up by Gedling Borough Council to help those in need during the pandemic.

Mr Collins hopes the sale will now help build bridges with the council following the decision.

He told Gedling Eye: ” We are a fun business and we knew the poster would get a reaction but we wanted to raise a few smiles.95% of the people loved it.

“We’re a local business and the community is really important to us so we thought it would be a great way to get back in with the council by selling off the poster for their charity.”

The store owners have now cheekily replaced the poster of the woman with a naked man in a bath.

The new poster has been put inside the shop window to avoid breaching planning regulations.

You can make a bid for the poster by visiting the Bathroom Store’s website: https://the-bathroom-store.co.uk/
