East Hunsbury Remembers
Annual community project and public installations
Outdoor Display 2020 with volunteers. This year, we expanded our community project, to create an outdoor installation at Hunsbury Library. Hundreds of poppies were created by crafters, local schools and community groups - knitted, felted, recycled poppies. Patterns were created by East Hunsbury WI members, Ollie Lyons and Pauline Boler. This photos shows our Seniors Reps and our volunteer Photographer, who all worked to help to install the community display.
Feedback from the community was hugely positive. We thank all of the volunteers who gave their time to the project EAST HUNSBURY REMEMBERS.

Each year, East Hunsbury Rocks group, create remembrance stones for our community display. For 2020, this included a special commemorative stone, which we will display each year, alongside their named rocks. The named rocks are inscribed with the names of family members, who gave their lives in conflict. These are hidden in our parks, for people to find and rehide.
