A Norfolk primary school have been working with a care scheme to make a centenary poppy display.
Pupils from Northgate Primary School, in Great Yarmouth, have been working on an intergenerational project with tenants living at The Lawns Housing with Care scheme.
Children have been visiting the scheme on Lawn Avenue and working with tenants to make hundreds of poppies to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
Carole Nisbet, manager at the Lawns, where NorseCare provides care to tenants in 30 flats, said: “The tenants have really enjoyed working with the children on this lovely project.
“This year’s Armistice Day is a significant anniversary, we’re sure the final display will be striking and remind us all of this important date in the calendar.”
