Poppy rocks could soon appear again in Weston, with the chance for people to get crafty with some paint for Remembrance Day.

Members of Weston Super Rocks decorated the memorial area of Grove Park with 100 rocks painted with poppies in 2018, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Director of intergenerational activities, Tania Bodalia, hopes this gesture will become an annual event.

She said: “If at least 100 rockers paint one poppy rock, we will achieve this show of remembrance again in the field of Remembrance. Help us to remember those who have fought and died for us over the years.”
