Armistice Centenary at Bellrock Close

26 Oct 2018

Residents, guests and staff remembered the fallen and all whose lives were affected by the Great War at a lunch and art show at our housing support service in Glasgow, Bellrock Close. 

The Minister of Cranhill Parish Church, Reverend Muriel Pearson gave a moving address and led the Act of Remembrance.  Mingled among the guests were There But Not There silhouettes to represent those who never returned to their communities. 

A delicious lunch was prepared with the help of residents who have been taking cooking classes as part of a project funded by the Scottish Veterans Fund.

The picture shows the beautiful cascade of 1,918 poppies made by residents and staff which flowed over the atrium balcony.

Work produced by the veterans' art club at Bellrock Close was on display: a stunning mixture of painting, sculpture and pyrography such as this wooden silhouette and delicate pyrography image of birds on barbed wire.  The art club has recently been generously funded by Glasgow City Council's Local Area Partnership Fund.
