Robert Owen Memorial Garden dressed up for remembrance
Robert Owen Memorial Garden dressed up for remembrance
The Newtown WI have 'yarn-bombed' some of the pollarded limes benches around this small garden at the junction of Short Bridge Street and Gas Street for the centenary of Armistice Day.
I believe similar decorations around the Cenotaph were not allowed.

A sign on one tree says...
A red poppy:
Signifies a lasting memorial for those who died in WWI and later conflicts - officially associated with the Royal British Legion.
A white poppy:
Remembers those who have died in conflict while emphasising the lasting commitment to peace - officially associated with the Peace Pledge Union.
A black poppy:
Remembering the African, Black and Caribbean communities who contributed in any way to the war effort - officially associated with BlackPoppyRose.
A purple poppy:
Is worn by those wanting to remember the animal victims of war - officially associated with the Animal Aid Charity.
