Ropewalk Xmas Tree Festival

2013 : December

Nuneaton Ropewalk’s first ever Christmas Tree Festival.  The trees were placed on the Ropewalk bridge in rows along the glass walls, and they looked absolutely wonderful all together.  Lots of attention was given to the display by the general public! As we had hoped and in the spirit of this community event, the trees were distributed to some families in need by Camphill Community Centre. The winners were presented with their prizes and photos were placed on social media platforms.  Thanks to all for participating. Janet Hartley Byng (Centre Administrator, Ropewalk Shopping Centre, Nuneaton)
Sunflower Sculpture Trail

2013 : September 7th - 28th

Artists Alisha Miller and Joanne Lole were at the forefront of a "Sunflower Trail" community project, which was being supported by Mary Ann Evans Hospice
It featured special pieces of sunflower artwork, with the aim of attracting more shoppers and boosting business, as part of Warwickshire County Council's Operation Footfall scheme.  The six-foot high sculptures have been designed and manufactured in Nuneaton by the Go See Team, with help from local craftsmen Ian Wills and Alan Fox and Subcon Laser Cutting's general manager Tom Mongan and IT manager Ian Jesson.  This resulted in production of an additional ten sculptures so the trail included around 30 in total."  Joanne added: "We would like to say a big thank you for the extremely positive response from Operation Footfall, the community, town centre venues and especially Mary Ann Evans Hospice, who gave the project enormous support and ensured its success." Alisha said: "We were really pleased to have been able to use local floral sculptures which had been created to brighten Nuneaton town centre and raise awareness of a local charity.
