WORLD War One will come into focus for one Worthing parish when an arts partnership unveils its textile hanging this month.

Seventy-four poppies, each with the name of a Heene serviceman lost during the war, and its aftermath, will go on display at St Botolph’s Church, in Lansdowne Road, this weekend.

Speaking on behalf of arts partnership Inclusive Arts, Clare Hills said: “With the First World War anniversary being such a big thing, we wanted to focus on the local impact of a Europe-wide event – what it meant for one little bit of Worthing alone.”

Another exhibit, featuring other World War One-inspired pieces, as well as the textile memorial, will be held at Inclusive Arts Gallery in Heene Road, next Saturday, from 3pm until 5pm.
