Fulbourn Youth Lounge remembrance poppy
Young people at Fulbourn Youth Lounge took time out from their usual activities to remember those who died for their country.
Fifteen young people from the youth club created a stunning memorial ‘poppy’ using cut outs of all the club members hands. The poppy was made to symbolise that each young person had stopped and thought about the service men and women who are injured or die whilst on active duty in the armed forces. Young people also did some on line research about the origin of poppy day and the two minutes silence - discovering that poppies are used as the flower of remembrance because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War I ended.
The Remembrance Poppy created by the club members took pride of place at Fulbourn Sports & Social Club last weekend when the village joined the nation in their annual Act of Remembrance.
