SIGNS OF PEACE - THE END OF THE GREAT WAR
COMMUNITY FLOWER GARDEN
Our yarn flower garden started growing in April 2016 when we invited local residents to to a workshop to knit and crochet flowers to brighten up the footpath that runs past the Scout Centre.
The project was inspired by the Purl Queens who created the beautiful Folkestone Remembrance poppies in the town. Following the workshop bags of brightly coloured flowers started arriving from parents of young people at 11th Folkestone, our neighbours, and local groups such as Harbour Crochet, Cheriton Ladies Bowling Club and a knitting group based at Holy Trinity Church. The Cubs and Beavers also got involved with each spending an evening making woollen flowers on tiny looms.
After a second community workshop hundreds of the flowers were put up on display for the rest of the summer. We were amazed how many people of supported this idea and were willing to use their creative skills and time to make a difference to our community and we are grateful for their support.
