Always remembered

ge wreath layingSunday 2nd June saw a fantastic turn out for the George Eliot wreath laying. Around 50 people came to participate and watch as flowers were laid and readings were spoken. The museum laid a wreath in memory of the local author.

The wreath laying ceremony is organised by the George Eliot Fellowship and is an annual occasion.  A selction of members, associates and councillors are invited to lay a wreath on the obelisk located in the George Eliot Memorial Gardens, Nuneaton. The wreaths are kept on the monument after the ceremony so you still have time to see them if you are out and about in town.

About janineclarefox

My name is Janine Fox and I am Assistant Museum Officer at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery. My role is to care and document the museum collection. Working within a small team means I also help install exhibitions, carry out research for enquiries and assist with larger museum projects. What inspires me? Apart from tea and chocolate, I would say travel, photography, art and anything old with a story to tell! It will come as no surprise that I love my job; I work with objects, ensuring that they are looked after, made available for the public and that their stories are recorded for perpetuity.
