Bramhall Remembers 100

5 Oct 2018

To mark 100 years since the armistice St. Michael and All Angels Parish Church are inviting everyone in Bramhall to join in with creating a community art installation of poppies. The idea is to create a curtain of poppies, to reflect the sacrifices made by the community of Bramhall 100 years ago.

St. Michael and All Angels Parish Church invite and hope that every family in Bramhall will join in by creating a paper poppy, which will then be brought together and hung in the tower at St. Michaels Parish Church.

Each poppy will represent one family saying thank you and remembering those who gave their lives freely for justice liberty and freedom. Bringing them together will show the unity of the community as well as reminding us of the scale of war. Our aim is to bring together at least 7000 paper poppies.

St. Michael and All Angels Parish Church are very thankful to the Local Area Committee of Stockport Council for agreeing to fund this project.

TIMINGS

  • During the first week of October, we are launching the project to the local community
  • From 10th October the poppy packs will be available to people to collect and start creating.
  • During the week of 5th November, we will be bringing all the poppies together and install the curtain
  • The installation will be unveiled on Sunday 11th November and the church will then be open for people to view it throughout the following week, the week beginning Monday 12th November

HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED!

  • Local Businesses – If you are a local business, we are looking for places to be collection points. This would involve having a box somewhere visible that people could pick up a poppy template and then drop it off when they have put it together. We would provide all the resources and regularly come and empty the box.
  •  
  • Community Groups – If you run a local community group, to hold a session with all your members where they can each create a poppy. We can provide you with the template and can come and collect the finished poppies from you.
  •  
  • Getting Active – In the week leading up to Remembrance Sunday we will be bringing all the poppies together and hanging them. The more help doing this the better.
