In November, Energise Galashiels launched a themed projection display of poppies at the Fountain/Cornmill Court. The light display was a stunning and poignant reminder of the sacrifice made by many, and commemorated Remembrance Day in front of the town’s beautiful war memorial.
A video of the poppies was shown on our I Love Gala Facebook page as a prelude to Energise’s ambitious plans for the 2016 festive season. It helped attract over 27,000 views during the month of November 2016. The Salmon Inn, one of the project’s key sponsors, had over 9,000 views of the video with many hundreds of lovely comments left on their own Facebook page.
The project was commissioned and sponsored by Energise Galashiels Trust for the community and we would like to thank all those involved in delivering this artwork, including our talented projection artist Mettje Hunniman, the Salmon Inn, the Auld Mill Inn and Scottish Borders Council for all their support.
