Tributes to mark 100 years since the end of World War One took place up and down the country in 2018. West Rainton Primary School made sure its pupils marked the occasion with a carpet of poppies created from recycled plastic. Our display looked stunning along with the silhouette statue of Tommy, on loan from our local history group. We held our own service of remembrance before surprising the residents of Springfield Lodge by taking our poppy carpet along to their front garden.
We will remember them.
