Making poppy wreaths

In honour of Remembrance Day, our residents at Lincroft Meadow Care Home in Kidlington, worked together to make poppy wreaths using felt and buttons. 

Pictured is our resident Janet, who thoroughly enjoyed making the poppies as it reminded her of when she used to help her husband make the poppy wreaths in his florist many years ago. On Remembrance Day, our residents gathered in the bistro to join together in a two minute silence. As well as laying the poppy wreaths and reading a few poems our residents listened to some hymns and wartime songs.
