Giant poppies have been put up for the second year to commemorate those who lost their lives during the two world wars.
Parish councillors John Walsby and Ian Harvey put up more than 50 poppies in Cox Green on Monday, October 31.
Cllr Walsby said: “The parish council feel it is important to raise the prominence of the appeal and remember the sacrifices made by our armed forces.
“I believe it necessary to keep youngsters aware of the significance of Remembrance Day when we can pause to remember all the people who have fought, been killed, have been injured or had their lives affected by war.
“My parents both served in the Royal Air Force and my dad used to say ‘a lot gave some but some gave all’.
The poppies were bought by Cox Green Parish Council and it hopes to have more next year.
