Lest we Forget - Poppy Display 2022
Remembrance Sunday is a yearly opportunity to remember and honour the service and sacrifice of all those that have defended our freedoms and protected our country. On the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, at the eleventh hour, World War One ended in 1918.
Poppies are worn and displayed as a sign of respect and to remember those who have given their lives in battle. The reason why Poppies are used to symbolise Remembrance is due to the fact they were the flowers which grew on the battlefields once World War One had ended.
Over the past month our Art and Allotment group have been working together making poppies to display in St Oswald’s Church for Remembrance Sunday. Many of our members have been involved in the making and design of our displays and it really does looks wonderful. Even those that don’t usually like to get involved with arts and crafts have had a go and really enjoyed it.
See the images at below.
One of our members Dian said “I have really enjoyed making the poppies and seeing the display come together, it looks lovely and I’m happy I could help to make the display.”
Daniel said, “It was my first-time making poppies and its been great fun working with everyone, to do the display.”
Thank you to everyone who has been involved and for all your hard work.
Lest we forget.
