B46 Rocks – Return of the Lockdown Snake

lockdown snake

Coleshill Town Council would like to support the local community in recreating the Lockdown Snake, as a more permanent and fitting memorial to our NHS, to be positioned on The Croft.

The Snake was originally started by B46 Rocks Facebook Group, but many of the original stones have now disappeared or need replacing, and it would be great to have some of the original designs recreated. 

The design of the tribute has not yet been finalised and will be dependent on the number of stones we receive.  We will make every effort to use all suitable and appropriate stones in the final design but we cannot guarantee it. 

If you would like to get involved in recreating the snake, please drop your painted stones off at the

Coleshill Community Hub (Entrance on Sumner Rd), where  you will receive a warm welcome from Helen or Charlie.

Between 7th Sept—30th Sept 2020  Mon—Fri 9.00 am—1.00 pm

Coleshill Hub:     01675 462 517

Town Hall:      01675 463 326

If you can’t drop off during these times, please contact  B46 Rocks on Facebook and they will drop off for you!

HS2 webinar invitation: Join our archaeology webinars for Heritage Open Days 2020, 11 – 19 September

From: Woolston, Fiona []

Before we build bridges, tunnels, tracks and stations, the largest archaeology programme ever undertaken in the UK is taking place along the line of route. Our archaeology programme is continuing to unearth discoveries across our sites.

To share information about these works and some of the exciting finds uncovered we are running a series of online archaeology events to support Heritage Open Days 2020.

We’re holding the following online events for Heritage Open Days 2020 (click on the events below to register):

You can find the full list of our online events here.

We will be publishing video recordings of the session online, so if you are not able to listen live you can still learn about each topic through a dedicated playlist on the HS2 YouTube channel.
