Banners and Flags

Banners and Flags

We're working with groups, including BBOWT, St Gabriel's School, former Peace Women, local war historians and numerous individuals to create 10 banners with international artis Ali Pretty, to chart the history of the Common.  These banners will be part of the main event in September and have a celebratory walk on the Common on Saturday 1st July.  Details to be advised.
