AN UPCYCLED POPPY DISPLAY MADE BY THE PUPILS AT LEATHERHEAD TRINITY SCHOOL

To commemorate Remembrance Day, a beautiful display of poppies was unveiled at Berkeley Homes’ Princes Chase development, Leatherhead on Monday 11th November. Representatives from Leatherhead Trinity School, who created the poppies, were joined by the Princes Chase Sales Team to acknowledge Armistice Day and the end of World War I.

Children from the Leatherhead Trinity School hand-crafted over 100 poppies, created from recycled plastic bottles that they cut, painted and crafted into individual flowers before mounting on canes to ‘plant’ at the development.  The resulting field of poppies has created a glorious vision of colour outside Berkeley Homes development at Princes Chase and is the perfect mark of respect for the fallen.

Harry Lewis, Managing Director Berkeley Homes Southern, said: “I would like to pass on a huge thank you to all the pupils and staff at Trinity School in Leatherhead for creating such a spectacular tribute for Remembrance Day. The display created a glorious vision for all our visitors and passers-by that use Woodlands Road in Leatherhead.  At Berkeley Homes, we work hard to build relationships and engage with the local community. Projects such as this poppy display at Princes is an example of how we can enhance our affiliation with local residents and this is a beautiful way to honour the anniversary of Armistice Day.”

Headteacher of Trinity School, Mrs Gray, comments: “The staff and pupils at Leatherhead Trinity School understand the importance of commemorating those, past and present, who have served, sacrificed and changed our world. We’ve been exploring the significance of Remembrance Day with the children, recognising our ancestors who gave up their lives in the First World War.  The experiences of those who lived through that time has shaped the world we live in today so it’s important that we teach young people to understand the sacrifices and achievements of this generation.  Along with the rest of the staff at Trinity School, I’m extremely proud of our pupils and the magnificent tribute they have created at Princes Chase.”
