Residents at Harmony House Care Home in Nuneaton have been busy getting creative for their Remembrance activities this year. They wanted to make an eye-catching poppy display that everyone at the home would be able to see.
The idea was for it to be portable so that it could be placed in different rooms of the home throughout November. The poppies were made using recycled plastic bottles. The bottoms of these were painted red by residents then attached to garden canes. They were then arranged into plant pots along with additional lengths of grass and smaller traditional poppies.
Making the poppies sparked many conversations about friends and family members that have served in the armed forces. Residents were very pleased with their creation and have had many compliments from visitors.
