All you need is Love.......we've got a wee project that we are very excited about and thrilled to announce!
We're creating a love anvil here at Gretna Green Famous Blacksmiths Shop and we NEED YOUR HELP!
In honour of a growing number of older couples marrying, or receiving blessings over the Anvil, the Gretna Green Love Anvil will be created using photos of older couples.....we think it's a wonderful way of celebrating togetherness!
Supported by both AgeUK and AgeScotland, this project began here at Gretna Green following the growing number of older couples marrying, remarrying or receiving an anniversary blessing over the Anvil in our Famous Blacksmiths Shop!
This fabulous double-sided project will be 2 metres in height and, fingers crossed, going on display next year! BUT we need YOUR photos to make this happen!
We've got our first four couples - who together have been married for a total of 233 years - but we're looking for more! 1,496 more to be precise!
Do you know a couple in their 50s or older who are married and would be willing to submit their photo? Send us your good-quality photo to firstname.lastname@example.org - we'll need names, ages, number of years, and addresses together submitted too!
The project's title will reflect the number of years that the featured couples have been married........how many years of marriage will we be able to reach?
We're buzzing with excitement - help us get this project started and send us your photos!
