A cascade of poppies has been planted in Hutton to mark 100 years of the RAF and the end of World War One.

The flowers have been placed outside the village hall by the Hutton in Bloom team as part of its displays for South West in Bloom.

RAF roundels have also been added to the display.

Village hall chairman Steve Cope said: “The Hutton in Bloom team has produced a wonderful display to celebrate the formation of the RAF and to commemorate the end of World War One.

“Thanks to all volunteers who make up the Hutton in Bloom team and to Elizabeth and David Cayford for putting together the wonderful display of poppies.

“Additional thanks should also go to all those who contributed plastic bottle bases for the poppies.”

Hutton in Bloom is hoping for another successful year after the village was judged to be gold standard for a second consecutive time in 2017.
