Seaham Remembers: moving tribute to the fallen at the foot of “Tommy”

From Brian Blake

Volunteers from the cadets and Seaham Veterans group have made a poppy mosaic made from stones collected from Seaham beach and hand-painted them. The artwork is the brain child of ex serviceman Dave McKenna and lies at the foot of “Tommy”, Ray Lonsdale’s much loved 1101 statue in Seaham

The images are of volunteers involved in making the mosaic, the artwork itself and some of the individual pebbles making up the artwork. The piece will be in situ until shortly after the Remembrance Service on Sunday, 13th November
