Parish Perspectives

1900-2020

FULL IMAGES OF THE TAPESTRY WILL BE SHOWN AFTER THE INITIAL EXHIBITION

This panel highlights some key features of the 14 parishes within Rochford District that hadn't been covered in previous panels. There are so many things that could have been chosen, so "don't shoot the messenger" as we asked for input from all parishes. These are the main items shown on this panel: 

Other items have been included in the frieze, such as phone box, pillar box, finger post, Lesney matchbox bus, drinking trough, pump, cannon, firestation. We have also added the Coronavirus symbol that caused the lockdown in 2020 and the rainbow that was used to demonstrate people's thanks to the frontline workers and also hope for the future.
