Bourne End school unveils poppy art installation

James Harrison

The lives of war dead from Buckinghamshire have been marked with art work at a Bourne End school.

Children from Clayton's Primary School, in Wendover Road, created individual poppies for the installation, which was unveiled on Friday.

About 300 of the flowers were made for the project, which saw them arranged around the school's old bell.

It was inspired by the Poppies: Weeping Window on show at Caernarfon Castle and which last year formed part of the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation at the Tower of London.

Headteacher Jensa Carter said: "We wanted the children to realise the importance of the poppy and what it means.

"We wanted them to realise what the people in the wars had given up for us and to be able to remember them."
