Beautiful poppy display created outside Buxton primary school
and live on Freeview channel 276
The moving monument features a cascade of over a hundred of the red flowers - each individually-cut and handmade from a table cloth by staff members at the school.
Beside the poppies sits a cutout of two soldiers and a Union Flag in the background - while two doves represent the peace that came with the armistice.
Joe Delli-Colli, 63, who helped build the display, told how it would serve as a memorial not just to the First World War fallen but to those who served in every conflict since.
He said: “We decided to do it to get the children to understand what soldiers in these conflicts went through.
“We wanted to spark in the kids’ minds how much these people gave - that they gave their lives.”
Standing next to the beautiful display in a photo are the school’s head boy and head girl Ben Fletcher-Wells and Esme Thomson.
Hannah Tarplee, chair of the school’s friends committee told how Ben had completed a sponsored walk of 11 miles - raising a magnificent £580 for The Royal British Legion.
She said: “Thank you Ben for thinking about how you can help others who are less fortunate than ourselves – we’re very proud of you.”
Speaking about the monument she said: “We wanted to create a display for children, parents and passers-by to stop for a moment and think about the millions who sacrificed their own lives for our freedom.”
