With 2014 marking the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, some local artists are remembering in their own special way.
Members of the St. Albert Quilters’ Guild took up the challenge this year of creating quilts with poppies incorporated into the designs to commemorate those who died in the war, which lasted from 1914 to 1918.

From around 28th July, you will notice some changes to the shape of the video screen as we have been busy converting all the videos to a format that is more user friendly, especially for those on iPads and tablets: you should notice that the video screens are bigger and slightly higher up the page
When you notice the change has happened, iPad and tablet users won't have to use Puffin, but you can use your regular browsers if you prefer, (eg Safari on iPad, Internet on Android tablets) as you would for other websites you visit.
If you view on a normal computer, laptop or Mac, you continue to view as normal, but again the video screens are bigger and slightly higher up the page
