National Commemoration of The Battle of the Somme

Dear John Davies
 
We are delighted to let you know that your memory square [a photograph of Ian Sawyers Scott from Ladybarn who was killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme] has been printed onto a ceramic tile to form part of The Path of the Remembered at Heaton Park in Manchester - the site of the National Commemorative Concert on 1st July 2016.
 
The Path of the Remembered will be visible to the public on Friday 1st (from 10am – 8pm, and Saturday 2nd July from 11am – 4pm). Following the event, some of the memory squares are being donated to a new Veterans Housing Village development for permanent installation in Newton Heath, Manchester, Manchester Art Gallery for interior use and Manchester Cathedral for display in their visitor centre. We are also speaking with Heaton Park to see if they may wish to retain some of the memory squares.
 
If you would like to order an original and pristine condition keep-sake of your personal ceramic terracotta memory square (from just £7.15 including P&P) You can do this directly from our partners TileFire using your reference number 1545. For more information please click here
 
Our ‘virtual path’ with your uploaded designs and words will remain online at www.somme100path.co.uk for the foreseeable future. Here you can view your memory square in the gallery and share it using Twitter, Facebook or email. 
 
We will continue to welcome further memory squares to our website, so do encourage friends, family or colleagues to pay their own tributes. Their submissions will be a part of our online, virtual Path of the Remembered as a wonderful resource for others to read. 
 
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your participation and for playing such a key part in commemorating all those that lost their lives or were affected by the Battle of The Somme.
