Remembrance tributes at Loose Valley Care Home

We commemorated our fallen soldiers on Thursday 11 November (the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month) and also on Remembrance Sunday at Loose Valley Care Home.

On Thursday, we enjoyed a DVD from our local church and watched the Remembrance service.

We talked about who had family members in the forces and Jean’s dad was in the Royal Navy which she was really proud of. We paused for our brave soldiers who fought for our country.

Poppies are a symbol of Remembrance, as a lot of the beautiful flowers were in by nearby battlefields. With this in mind, we recited the famous poem by John McCrae, ‘Flanders Fields‘ which was inspired by the poppies fluttering in the fields.

On Remembrance Sunday we watched the service from the Cenotaph in London from 10:15am and paused at 11am to fall silent for two minutes to honour our war heroes who fought for our freedom.

We continued after lunch watching Songs of Praise on television, which featured the British Legion village in Larkfield where they have a factory making the country’s paper poppies.

We made our own special display with the silhouette of a soldier covered in poppies that our residents had coloured, a poppy wreath and a canvas poppy picture for a memorial.
