1,000 origami cranes, each carrying Harleston’s message of peace and personal thoughts from hundreds of pupils and students, with swift-printed wingtips hung all summer in a large display. In September the swift-printed wing-tips were cut off and placed in a clear sphere to represent the planet. The sphere travelled to the UN and Ground Zero. 1,000 Wing-tips are now embarking with a peace message on an epic journey via California, hopefully to the edge of space , where, if all goes well, they will be the highest peace message in the world on that day. Our Town Crier announced their departure in inimitable traditional style.
Quite a mission for the people of Harleston, The Rotary Club and Harleston’s Future. We have our fingers crossed for their safe return.
