Blessing the Children's Banner
On 22nd December 2004 the Mayor of Seaham Counc. Charles Walker,
held the annual Civic Carol Service at St Hild & St Helen's Church, Dawdon.
It is an important event in the civic calendar which involves the
"Seaham Churches Together" and is attended by civic dignitaries from all
over the north east region.
The return had been planned for December but
the specialist fabrics required proved more difficult to acquire than had
Once unwrapped the banner was lift into heavy metal stands and looked impressive.
Proudly pictured (left to right) are Dr Eddie Mason, Counc. Ron Meir, Malcolm Smith, Jacqueline Hyman and Tom Race.
Finally, the children helped to raise the banner into its new glass cabinet
where it will be housed and seen by the many people who use and visit Rock
House Community Centre. Hopefully, Seaham will soon have its own Heritage
Centre and the banner will eventually be moved there.
We reflect on all the heritage work and learning that has gone on during this project and wish to thank Heritage Lottery Fund for the support and finance they have given to us. Without them it could never have taken place.
