The Cove are proud to have been commissioned to help dress the Calverley Precinct Clock Tower in a striking faux-flower collection of artificial poppies and autumnal foliage.
As reported in Kent Online and In Your Area and led by RTW Together Business Improvement District, Tunbridge Wells has set about honouring the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces with a colourful, but poignant, display as part of its Remembrance celebrations this month.
At The Cove, we are proud to have been commissioned to help dress the Calverley Precinct Clock Tower in a striking faux-flower collection of artificial poppies and autumnal foliage. This was coupled with on floor displays – all created by our very own Amy Lethbridge.
The display was planned to run from November 1 until Remembrance Sunday on November 14.
“Remembrance is always an important time of year, and this year perhaps more than ever, we have reason to stop and reflect on not just those we’ve lost recently, but those who came before and the contribution that the Armed Forces have made for all of us," said BID Director for RTW Together, Sarah-Jane Adams.
"We hope this display will be a poignant way to mark the changing of the seasons, pay our respects to those who have and continue to serve their country, and provide a beautiful point of interest for the top end of Tunbridge Wells town centre.”
The Cove, founded by florist Amy Lethbridge and designer Phil Reid, has just successfully completed its first year of trading.
“We are super excited, and as a relatively new business in Tunbridge Wells, it’s been amazing to be part of something that’s so community-centric, and showcases some of our creativity as a business," said Phil.
"It’s special to do something that all of Tunbridge Wells can see and enjoy, and for such a meaningful reason.”
