Mayor Poppies

In storage - paper poppies made by Henley schoolchildren to mark the centenary of the start of the First World

In storage - paper poppies made by Henley schoolchildren to mark the centenary of the start of the First World War will be stored and used again. Pupils in years 5 and 6 made 298 poppies in memory of soldiers from the Henley area who lost their lives. In August, the flowers were placed on the roundabout near Tesco in Reading Road. In 2018 they will be used to mark the centenary of the end of the war. Henley Mayor Martin Akehurst said, “The idea is to keep the commemoration of the war going.”
