The event culminated with a bring and share barbecue, open mic music sessions and the burning of The Memory Pyramid attended by over 50 local people and participants.
The 12 foot high pyramid was designed and constructed by Clive Brocklehurst. The structure, made from foraged branches from local woodland, was erected looking out to sea at Cheristow above Hartland.
Clive commented "It was more successful than I had hoped and looked amazing as it burnt in the dark. People embraced the idea of celebrating good memories and letting go bad ones. There were lots of emotions contained in the pyramid by the end, but I was most moved by one local young girl, Phoebe, who said she had recently visited the Imperial War Museum and had sat in a Spitfire cockpit simulator. She said ‘It was just horrible… I want to write No More War’ so she did and we tied it right at the apex of the pyramid…"
Thanks to everyone who made the event so special.
