A weekend celebration of the Worcesters at St peters garden Centre on saturday the 20 -21st October This will consist of Arts and Craft activities inside the main building. It will be open to anyone but especially children. They can make Air Dry Clay Poppies & paint them. Plus we want them to add to a Frieze of their ideas relating to the Worcestershire Soldiers. Plus other things.
On the Sunday we would hope that we could build a mountain of poppies in the commemorative Garden and host a service of Remembrance in the morning, followed by Tea/coffee and cakes for all. Bearing in mind the massive amount of pressure being put on you guys to attend all sorts of events, would you think it feasible that the lads would be prepared to attend the Sunday morning service, with the Standards and bugle
