Update on the Memorial Wreath
Date Posted: 15th November 2013
It has been confirmed that the 1914 - 2014 Memorial Wreath will be displayed next year at The National Memorial Arboretum Croxall Road Alrewas Staffordshire DE13 7AR.
This is fantastic news. There is no better place for it to be displayed than our nations place of remembrance. The NMA is roughly the middle of the UK and will give thousands the opportunity to see it. As more detailed information becomes available it will be published ASAP.
To date 500 bead packs have been sent out to every corner of the UK as well as USA , Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Cyprus and Dubai. Recently Malta have said they want to help as well 200 completed brooches have already returned and this good news about the venue will help spur on the return of the remaining ones. Pam has now been tasked with getting a frame structure made on which the poppies will be placed and she envisages the wreath will be ready for display from Spring next year.
