Snowdrops in Warstone Lane Cemetery planted by #JQHeritageSquad volunteers, local residents and businesses, plus a bubble of pupils from @corejqacademy are now in full bloom. Each plant will grow into a clump of daughter plants over time, getting bigger each year. A wonderful sign that Spring is nearly here and great food for the bees! #cemeterywildlife #jq #jewelleryquarter...
We are working with @woolly_works on a Poppy Stitching Project for #remembrance.
Poppies have a long history as symbols of remembrance. Through stitching a poppy, and through the artwork we will create together, we will remember those from all nations and all conflicts who lost their lives in war, and the sacrifices made by men, women, children and animals in the pursuit of peace. We will be sharing the names and stories of over 100 service personnel who are commemorated in the Jewellery Quarter Cemeteries throughout the project.
There are four colours of poppy to choose from, to sign up please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Have you tried the Musical Milestones trail yet? Stop 9 is the Winkles family grave in Warstone Lane Cemetery. They had a Jewellery business based in Vittoria Street.
This trail was developed by @efthimis_anadimis_ and Claudio from @ucbofficial who did their student placement with @jqcemeteries and @jqth_project this year.
Musical Milestones is a unique way to explore the JQ through music and song.
Download here or pick up a leaflet around the JQ

As we leave lockdown 2, we are looking back and celebrating the images the community have shared with us since March. The cemeteries have been part of people's lives as a place to exercise and see some nature.
