Our Sunflower Memories return this summer to adorn lamp posts in Rossendale and remember lost loved ones. Last summer 550 sunflowers brightened valley streets, bringing much comfort and joy to so many. This year is especially poignant as we approach the National Day of Reflection on 23rd March. This day, spearheaded by Marie Curie, has been arranged for the one year anniversary of the country going into the first national lockdown and aims to remember those who died during the pandemic, be it from Covid or any other cause.
Sunflower Memories is an opportunity to reflect in Rossendale and our wish to bring brightness and hope to many.
Simply tell us who you would like to dedicate your sunflower in memory of and choose an area which you would like to see your Sunflower.
Book before 18th May and see your lamppost dedication go up during June
Bookings made after 18th June will go up for the month of July only

SUNFLOWER MEMORY MARKERS
Sunflower memory markers are also available for you to display in your garden.
You can choose to have a name hand written (up to 17 letters) or choose to have a blank sunflower to write your own message on if you wish.
Sunflower Memory Markers will not be available for collection until restrictions are eased.
