Poppies for Newcastle

Newcastle PoppiesWe all know that a major artistic installation entitled ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ sees the Tower of London’s famous dry moat filled with over 888,000 ceramic poppies to create a powerful visual commemoration for the First World War Centenary. Many have worked hard to produce such a spectacular sight and huge crowds have gathered every day from morning till night. The residents in Newcastle were not to be outdone and have been busy, during their regular pottery classes, producing poppies which have been admired by everyone who visited the Home. It was a great achievement and we congratulate them on their untiring efforts.
