A floral World War 1 tribute

Last year the flower bed at the bottom of Coldstream’s Guards Road displayed a World War 1 theme, and plans for a similar display this year are being discussed.

The town’s floral display team is keen to see a floral display based around the 1915 Battle of Gallipoli, in which local KOSB soldiers were involved, and Coldstream Community Council are happy to go along with this.

At last week’s community council meeting it was agreed that the flower bed could be themed on World War 1 up to 2018, and that a permanent display should take over after that.

There will be community engagement to see what the permanent display should involve after 2018 - one suggestion is a mosaic of the town crest, similar to that in the centre of the Market Square.
