If you’ve been reading this site or are on social media you’ll no doubt have heard of RammyRocks.
This year to commemorate 100 years since World War 1 they are creating a big work of art in Nuttall Park.
The Remembrance Rocks Project as its being called is currently being organised and RammyRocks are looking for help.
Being heavily organised by Steve Butterworth who has dedicated a lot of the last year to get this Project of the ground there are now just a few more weeks left to get it all organised.
The Remembrance Rocks Project is to create a memorial in Nuttall Park for the 100th anniversary of WW1. The plan is to create a carpet of rocks painted by local children and adults, whether it be to remember a family member who may have fought or died in the war or just their own thoughts on WW1.
The centre piece will feature a time capsule buried underneath to connect the past, present and future.
That’s the plan, however it can only happen with your help.
RammyRocks are currently looking for as many people as possible to paint rocks the rocks. As you can imagine, a carpet of rocks needs an army of volunteers.
RammyRocks are going into local schools, where Adam Butterworth has been conducting a talk on the war and where children can paint rocks. There will also be three workshops in Nuttall Park on 13th and 14th of October and one on the 20th of October.
If you’re painting at home, a drop off point for your painted rocks has been arranged with florist Alternative Arrangements on Bridge Street.
All rocks are needed by the 21st of October at the latest.
