V E Day – A Floral Thank You

The 8th of May will mark the 75th Anniversary of the cessation of hostilities in Europe and we, at The St Mary Centre, wanted to take the time honor and remember those who suffered the hardships and tragedies of this conflict. Unfortunately in light of the global health crisis, which arguably makes this commemoration  more poignant, we now find ourselves unable to  hold a more traditional event that would have encouraged community and public involvement.

With This in mind we have partnered with Florist, Jo Preece of Jolie Fleurs, asking her to create a  floral display that pays tribute to the heroes of yesteryear and those of more recent times.

The display, at her shop in 8 St Mary’s Way, will be on show for a limited time in her front window and we would invite you to take a look, whilst adhering to all of the current advice regarding social distancing.
