A sculpture honours shearer Kevin Sarre who was raised in Lockington. 

Kevin Sarre became the world’s ‘top-gun’ shearer on narrow shearing combs as his career unfolded. Lockington is so honoured to have reared Kevin Sarre who achieved National Champion 5 times, a Golden Shears Winner in 1963, and World Shearing Record in 1965 of 346 merinos.

He went on to develop the Tally-Hi method of Shearing, becoming a shearing instructor and teacher whose wool industry contribution is almost unparalleled
