Over the last couple of years, since many passionate locals got on board to start the Shirehampton Christmas Illuminations drive it has been noted by many how much tighter the local community feels. This year has seen the Christmas Illumintions committee try something different. The idea to auction off Large Personalised Poppy’s to decorate the village and honour the fallen was made.
The Poppy’s were in huge demand and yesterday saw them erected. We are very proud to have been able to donate and have ours erected in the village, It can be viewed at the Co-Op crossing.
As with every year members of our committee will attend the combination memorial display at the former Bristol Rugby ground, the Memorial Ground where clubs will lay wreaths in remembrance of the fallen at the stadiums memorial gates.
We shall never forget!
