Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By ALAN WICK­ENS

Two res­i­dents of Sum­mer­set Re­tire­ment Vil­lage in Aotea have cre­ated a wall hang­ing to rep­re­sent the pop­pies that bloomed on the bat­tle­fields of World War I.

Ca­role Wick­ens said that red pop­pies had be­come a sym­bol of re­mem­brance and she made a dis­play, with the help of Jay Emer­son, to be hung in the Vil­lage re­cep­tion area for the rest of Novem­ber and for next Anzac Day.

Novem­ber 11 marks the an­niver­sary of the Armistice that ended hos­til­i­ties on the Western Front of World War 1. A spe­cial event was held to­day to dis­play the pop­pies at Sum­mer­set Vil­lage.
