As part of this summer’s Marvellous Mossley celebrations, community groups are pulling together to create a herd of mammoths.
They will be found homes in various public spaces around town in the fortnight leading up to the event on July 8 before ‘stampeding’ into George Lawton Hall.
The mammoths are being created by volunteers from over 20 different community groups, including cubs and guides, assorted adults and teeny tinies, all getting their hands dirty and sticky mammoth making.
There will be a diverse range of groups involved from Mossley Community Centre, the Vale Arts Centre, Emmaus Mossley and Mossley Youth Base.
Mossley schools are also making mammoths with Livingstone, Micklehurst All Saints and Milton St. Johns all involved.
The mammoths will be on display in public locations from June 23 and every school child in Mossley will be given a mammoth trail sheet to go and hunt them – pick up a trail sheet from Mossley library.
Bring your full (or very nearly full) sheet along to the event for a special treat.
The project has been funded by a Big Lottery Grant through the Celebrate England fund and is being co-ordinated by local crafting group Mossley Makes and Mossley based arts company, Green Monster Arts.
