Annual Wreathlaying - Nuneaton
Sunday, 17 June 2018 at 3.00pm
The Annual wreathlaying event takes place every summer at the obelisk in the George Eliot Memorial Gardens, alongside the river in Nuneaton. The obelisk has been there since it was moved from Arbury Park in the 1950s and every year we have a guest of honour to lay a chaplet or wreath on behalf of the Fellowship.
There are usually 15 or 16 groups from the area who lay a wreath. The Mayor of the Borough will lay a wreath on behalf of the residents of the borough.
The event includes some readings from or about George Eliot appropriate to the occasion and the whole event lasts about 40 minutes. We then repair to Nuneaton Museum for tea and cakes.
