Hickathrift House commemorated Remembrance Sunday on Sunday 11th November, and joined the rest of the United Kingdom in holding a two-minute silence at 11am.
As well as marking Remembrance Day by wearing poppies and watching the televised service, some residents were taken to the local cenotaph to commemorate the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty.
The residents had been really busy in the run up to the day making their own poppies out of plastic bottles to create a display on the fence outside of the home.
We were very proud to receive some trees from the Queens Commonwealth Canopy. Michelle Taylor, Head of the Memory Lane Community at Hickathrift House, applied for the trees and they kindly donated three to the home. Resident, Gerard Cater, planted them next to the beautiful display on Remembrance Sunday.
