Yeaveley church marks 175 years

Holy Trinity Church in Yeaveley near Ashbourne have found an unusual way of marking their anniversary. Taking their inspiration from the recent poppies display at the Tower of London, 175 ceramic daffodils (one for each year of the church) are currently blooming in the church grounds.

Each flower has been hand made by local artist Vicky Scotcher and other residents. She said, “It was great to see some people who have lived in the same village for years, but never met before, coming together to get messy in clay and chat! The daffodils are made from a durable stoneware clay and are in two designs so they can be kept inside or outside afterwards as a reminder of the celebrations and in memory of loved ones.”
