Lasting Impressions – Tunbridge Wells Pandemic Memory Tree

Lasting Impressions – Tunbridge Wells Pandemic Memory Tree

Lasting Impressions – Tunbridge Wells Pandemic Memory Tree, is a community involvement project run by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council, in partnership with Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust.  We are creating a quilted tree wall hanging, with leaves made by members of the local community to share their memories, reflections, and experiences of living through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Similar to the hand-crafted ‘Poppy Parade‘ in 2017 & 2018, we are inviting people across the borough to create and send us their own memory leaf to be included as part of our tree.  Once completed the memory tree will be displayed at The Amelia when it opens in Spring 2022, before taking up permanent residence at Tunbridge Wells Hospital/

Further information about the project an info-sheet with a template and instructions on how to take part can be found at: https://twsocial.co.uk/channels/lasting-impressions/

The deadline for sending in completed leaves is 6th March 2022.  Leaves can be posted to the TWBC Town Hall or we have “Leaf drop off boxes” at the following locations:
