PUPILS at a Cookley school have found inspiration from another source to commemorate the ending of the First World War.

Cookley Sebright Primary School has created its own poppy field in front of the school taking the idea from the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation at the Tower of London.

Every student and staff member at the school have made a poppy which the children planted in the front of school in readiness for their act of remembrance on Armistice Day.

Hope Rushton, teacher in charge of the project, said: “It has generated a lot of interest in the village and the response from both the school and community has been amazing.

“Villagers have wanted to make their own poppies to add to the display.

“It is good that we remember those who have lost their lives in conflict, and this is a fitting tribute to those who died in the Great War.”
