Sight Support WW1 Banner Celebrations

We have finally completed the WW1 banner created with the members of sight support groups in Derby, Chesterfield and Clay Cross. We worked with adults and young people, we did research, we visited the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire and we watch soldiers re-enactments to help us create the banner. 
We had a wonderful gathering at the Post Mill in South Normanton to unveil the banner and celebrate everyone's hard work.
The banner will tour venues around Derbyshire over the next few months before being installed in the new Sight Support Derbyshire office.
The banner inspired by the soldiers uniforms, the embroidered postcards and the animals used in the war.
