Care home creates Remembrance Day 'poppy garden'

A ‘poppy garden' was created by residents at a care home to commemorate Remembrance Day.

St Mark’s Nursing Centre created the garden as part of a competition organised by Bupa Care Services, which run the care home in St Mark’s Road.

Harry Lockwood, a war veteran and a resident at the care home, featured in the garden, along with his carer Matilda Crowford who represented a modern female soldier.

Home manager Ellie Faramarzian said: “We tried to incorporate a powerful message as well as creating a poppy garden.

“The empty wheelchair is to show a fallen soldier, our resident in the picture is a surviving war veteran and the carer in the middle representing a modern female soldier.

“The display and the idea was from Clare Englfield and Jane Purdue in our activity team.”
