Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

THE Mayor and May­oress of West Lan­cashire vis­ited the hand­made poppy dis­play at Por­tico Nurs­ery at West End.

The nurs­ery chil­dren had cre­ated a 100 fall­ing poppy ar­range­ment in the gar­den area, us­ing re­cy­cled bot­tle tops to make the dis­play,

The chil­dren painted the bot­tle tops to make pop­pies.

The nurs­ery was very grate­ful to Suzanne Connell, who in­vested hours of her time to help staff and chil­dren en­sure they had enough pop­pies to com­mem­o­rate the 100th an­niver­sary of the end of WWI.

Nurs­ery staff had been talk­ing to the chil­dren about why we re­mem­ber the sol­diers, and why it is im­por­tant we con­tinue to re­mem­ber them.

Ayla, one of the young­sters from the nurs­ery said: “We have been learn­ing the poppy song and re­mem­ber­ing the sol­diers in the poppy field.”

The chil­dren de­lighted mayor Noel De­lany and may­oress Ann Stub­bert, par­ents and friends with their per­for­mance of the poppy song.

Amanda Wi­ley of the nurs­ery said: “We work closely with our par­ents, we are one team shap­ing, de­vel­op­ing and nur­tur­ing young minds.

“It’s im­per­a­tive we in­stil man­ners and morals as well.

“We should re­mem­ber all our armed forces who have and con­tinue to serve.

“This is just one day in the year where we come to­gether and re­mem­ber and it should be marked as part of the chil­dren’s learn­ing jour­ney.

“Our team have been ab­so­lutely amaz­ing get­ting this dis­play per­fect and we want to thank ev­ery­body in­volved in to­day’s event.”
