We are working with VC Gallery, Pembroke Dock to create an art installation to commemorate Pembroke’s fallen heroes of WW1.
A community workshop was organised on Wednesday, October 10th at the VC Gallery, and members of the community dropped in to paint the candles with poppies - even the police! A lovely occasion, and mission accomplished with all candles decorated!
The Society has been researching the identities of the soldiers named on the Cenotaph. and the intention was to decorate candles, each bearing the name of a fallen soldier ,with a poppy to form a memorial display. The artwork is to be called ‘Field of the Fallen’ and will be displayed in St Mary’s Church, Pembroke where there is presently a WW1 exhibition of photographs and stories about the impact of the Great War in our locality .
This is part of a Heritage Lottery sponsored project 'Pembroke Commemorates the Centenary of the end of WW1'
