Supporting Canford Heath Remembers

Posted by: /




Last Friday, Natalie O’Hara represented the company, when the Mayor of Poole, Cllr Jo Clements visited Canford Heath at the invitation of ARCH to view all aspects of Canford Heath Remembers.

The Mayor began her visit at the Canford Heath Library where she was introduced to members of ARCH, Library staff, members of the Broadstone British Legion and Nicholas O’Hara Funeral care. First, she was shown the display of knitted poppies that local residents have made, and commented on the amount of time and effort that must have gone into producing such a wonderful display. The Mayor also showed particular interest in the display of the pictures showing all the Pilots that roads on Canford Heath are named after, together with the roles they played.

She was then given a guided tour of the lamp post poppies, some of which have been sponsored by Nicholas O’Hara, but not all 235 because that would have taken too long!  At the end of the visit, she was given a jar of Canford Heath honey and some personalised artwork of the heath.  She again said how impressed she was by all the hardwork and skill that has gone into the event and enjoyed finding out more about the history of Canford Heath.

We have been really honoured to be involved in this great community project, of remembering all those who have served our country and especially those from our local communities. Our Canford Heath funeral home is located at the Neighbourhood Centre, just along from Asda.
