Curtain of Poppies

Last weekend was Wonderwool Wales, the wool festival for which we made the poppies, so I finally saw them all in place. There were over 65,000; of which we had contributed about 1,500. I thought they looked wonderful, and they were the highlight of the weekend, also being featured in the local press and on BBC Wales

The poppies will be going on a tour before having a permanent home at the Gower Heritage centre in Wales. The tour locations haven’t yet been finalised, and may not be nationwide, but if they do come to the north west we’re hoping we will be able to go to see them.

So here’re my photos together with another big thank you to all those friends (and kind strangers!) who helped make such a beautiful and poignant tribute to those whose lives were lost in World War 1.

St John’s and St Cuthbert’s Youth Club

We are sorry to say that St Cuthbert’s Parochial Church Council has had to make the decision to suspend the popular Friday Night Youth Club until further notice. For safeguarding reasons, we believe that there needs to be a trained Youth Worker running the Club, and unfortunately, in today’s financial climate, St Cuthbert’s does not have the income to appoint someone to that role. We will continue to review the position and consider whether we can re-start the Youth Club later in the year.
