We have been doing lots of things in preparation for Remembrance Day here at Harper Fields. We started off with weeks of knitting poppies, which were pinned together to make a dress – and the results were fantastic!
We also did some pottery painting with Sue Cox, which the residents really enjoyed; and made a memory tree that's now on display in our reception area. All the messages for the tree were read out in our church service, and were lovely to hear. The service was very busy and the residents all enjoyed it.
In the afternoon, we had Beccie Marshall in, who performed wartimes songs that everyone sang along to.
