Park’s commemorates the centenary of Great War

editorial image

A Matlock park is commemorating the centenary of the First World War.

A sculpture standing amongst wild flowers in Hall Leys Park and the vegetable plot in front of the trench symbolise the struggles that people experienced during the war.

The bed, designed, and made by members of Matlock In Bloom has been appreciated by visitors to the park over the last few.

Twiggs of Matlock manufactured the steel profile and Derwent Treescapes provided the lavender edging plants.

Are you commemorating the centenary of the Great War, either with an event or a display? Do you have photos of an event or exhibition that has already taken place to honour the anniversary? Send photos and brief details to: news@matlockmercury.co.uk
