There will be a mass paint off held on Western Road, Crookes, to commemorate Armistice Day, and to celebrate the trees that were planted as a living war memorial.
The trees were planted in remembrance of pupils from the local primary school who died in the First World War.
23 of the trees are now under threat of felling under the councils “Streets Ahead” contract.
The event will commence with a service of remembrance. There will then be a silent procession along lower Western Road, ending at the war memorial plaque on the wall of Westways School.
The art event will then follow with participants collecting materials and getting stuck into their drawings or paintings up and down the road.
It is intended that every memorial tree be represented by the end of the day. There’ll be a chance to see lots of artists of all abilities (including some professionals) at work, plus there’ll be a Family Activity Area with art, craft and tree related activities to participate in. It should be a great day!
It’s not too late for people to register to participate in drawing or painting a tree – if interested please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
