Wigmore Residents’ Make Poppy Wreath
Residents Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore spent a morning getting crafty and creating a poppy wreath for a Remembrance Day window display.
With no public act of remembrance taking place this year due to the ongoing pandemic, people are being encouraged to put poppies in their windows, to show their appreciation and respect for the members of the armed forces who died in the line of duty.
So, with that in mind, residents of the Drewery Drive care home decided to create a beautiful paper poppy wreath, to show their respect and display in their window.
Jackie Miles, Home Manager of Rogers House said: “As we all know, the ongoing pandemic means there will be no commemorative public event for Remembrance Day this year, with that in mind, we decided to join the community in creating a window display.
“The residents were keen to mark the occasion and show their respect, so we thought a lovely bright red poppy wreath would be just perfect to pop in the window.”
