Schools plant flowers in memory of World War One
Pupils from three local schools have been very busy planting out flowers in poppy-shaped beds in Ellington Park. The red geraniums form part of the preparation for the World War One event taking place on Sunday 13th.July to mark the hundredth anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War.
The youngsters from Christ Church, Ellington Infants and Laleham Gap schools were invited by the Friends of Ellington Park to play their part in commemorating this centenary event.
Friends’ chairperson, Beverley Perkins, said, “It was wonderful to see so much enthusiasm among the children as they got involved in this lovely creation.”
