On Saturday 4th November, a poppy making session was held at The Birtley Hub. Children, parents and grandparents came along and created some lovely poppies for Remembrance Day. They took great pride in making the poppies and also wrote personal messages on them. The poppies were then taken along and displayed in the pavilions in The War Memorial area.
A massive thank you to all involved. 

Volunteers from The Birtley Hub will open the pavilions for an hour or so after the Remembrance Day Service. This is for anyone wishing to view the poppies or to reflect and remember.

They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them
