With the run up to Armistice Day the residents here at Bank Close House put their time and energy into making poppies to help celebrate and remember the fallen heroes of both World Wars.
We placed all the poppies around Bank Close House, including on the front door and our sign at the front. The residents really enjoyed making the poppies as they chatted about their experiences in the war and their memories of remembrance days past. Some spoke with tears in their eyes and some cracked a smile has they remembered. Dorothy recalled driving tanks in war time and Dennis hummed along to the Last Post.
Check out the poppies here:
All in all, everyone had a great day remembering our fallen heroes, and here at Bank Close House. We Will Remember Them.
