Poppy planting for fallen soldiers at Puxton

Green-fingered youngsters from Castle Batch Primary School took part in a commemorative poppy planting activity at Puxton Park last week.
Pupils from the school in Rawlins Avenue, Worle, sowed special remembrance seeds alongside members of the Royal British Legion, as part of a project to commemorate soldiers killed during World War One. It is hoped the seeds will flower and Puxton will be bathed in a sea of red poppies in time for Remembrance Sunday in November.
Park manager Sarah Warren said: “Inspired by the Tower of London’s centenary poppy tribute, we wanted to create our own living memorial at Puxton.
“We hope that by planting the poppies, the children will begin to understand the horrors and the sacrifices made by the soldiers and their families.”
