There But Not There – Silent statues go on tour!

November 8th, 2018

You may have seen the ‘silent silhouettes’ popping up around Halton as we say ‘thank you. to the First World War generation.

But this week we have some new ones across Halton to remind us of the fallen men and women from conflict and they can be seen in our Community Centres.

Halton Borough Council Community Development Team has been working alongside Runcorn’s Old Town Bloom Garden which have secured funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund to display ‘There but not There’ silhouettes across community venues.

Throughout this week, the Tommy silhouettes will be displayed in each our of Council operated Community Centres to remind visitors to the centre of the sacrifices made by those during World War One.

The Tommy Silhouettes have been places in the reception areas of each centre and are a clear Perspex to remind us that the fallen are There but not There.

The schedule is/was as follows.

Monday 5 Nov Upton Community Centre 
Tuesday 6 Nov Ditton Community Centre 
Wednesday 7 Nov Castlefields Community Centre 
Thursday 8 Nov Murdishaw Community Centre 
Friday 9 Nov Grangeway Community Centre

There But Not There will be the defining centenary commemoration of the end of the 1914-1918 war, installed where the men and women came from across the country, back in the communities they left behind.

The project led by Old Town Bloomers will culminate with an afternoon tea in the garden in High Street, Runcorn on Saturday 10 November at 1pm – 3pm, to remember those that served in the First World War.

Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for the Community, Cllr Phil Harris, said: “We in Halton are proud to support another commemoration of these brave men and women and help their memory live on.”
