WW1 Centenary Marked With 100 Poppies At Care Home

Centanry100 POPPIES were created by Barnsley care home residents to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Marion Batty, Joan White and Annie Oakley, all living at Deangate Care Home, on Towngate, Mapplewell, created the memorial.

They made poppy wreaths and a canvas of finger-painted poppies surrounding a silhouette of a First World War soldier and the words “We Remember”.

Nicola Smith, activities coordinator at Deangate Care Home, said: “As it has been 100 years since the First World War ended, we thought it would be nice to make a memorial.

“The activity was to remember all the people who fought for us and to talk about what the war meant to our residents.

“We made 100 poppies and these have been placed all around the home.”
