Two banks of poppies have bloomed on Stony Lane roundabout in Christchurch in commemoration of the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1.
The poppies have grown from seeds donated by Co-operative Funeralcare in Bargates as part of a national project by the company.
Jo Medlow, Funeral Arranger at the Christchurch funeral home, said: “We thought that it would be nice to donate all of the seeds we had to the council for them to plant somewhere everyone would be able to appreciate them and think about the men and women who gave their lives during World War 1 and all the conflicts since then.”
The Mayor of Christchurch, Cllr Denise Jones, added: “We’re very grateful to Co-operative Funeralcare for donating the seeds. They have contributed to a magnificent show which has been seen by everyone approaching the roundabout.
“The poppies have added to all the other wild flowers which the council has planted in various places in the borough and which will be flowering over the summer months.”
