Bunting

This project involved local primary schools, creating unique Ladies Day bunting using children’s artwork.

CAN Group worked with children from four primary schools, creating 100 individual designs to form a unique commemorative bunting. Workshops began with the history of ‘Ladies Day, using lots of images and film from the past to the present. Children then created individual pennants with images based on the ladies who’ve walked through the ages, flowers, soldiers and other Neston features.

Images were scanned and sent to a bunting company to create 500 metres of bunting, enough for the whole route of the Ladies Walk.

The workshops took place in March, the bunting was manufactured in April and will be on display in the town from the end of May.

The project has been co-ordinated by Community Activities in Neston, with the help of Claire Danks who created the costume for Neston’s Jubilee Giant Queen.
