Poppies and Silk

The Restoration of the Nicholson War Memorial

In August 2012 the Rotten Park Road team were delighted to be tasked with documenting and creating a short film for ‘Poppies and Silk’ a community project funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and Leek Town Council, educating and involving young people about Nicholson War Memorial, Leek and the work that goes into maintaining and restoring it. 

The project inspired many young people and members of the local community in Leek, Staffordshire, and culminated in a gallery opening at Leek’s NicholsonInstituteArtGallery, which previewed the short film.
