Welwyn Garden City youngsters have created giant wreaths to honour those who lost their lives as a way of marking the centenary of the World War I.
Schools teamed up with The Howard Centre to create them for the Welwyn Garden City’s Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
The collaboration saw creations from Oaklands Primary School, Homerswood School, Our Lady Catholic Primary School and Applecroft School.
Shoppers were then invited to vote for their favourite wreath.
Our Lady’s won with 182 of the overall 328 votes.
Over the coming weeks, RBL’s very own veterans, will be on hand to share their own inspiring experiences and stories with the general public in the shopping centre.
The Howard Centre will also be observing the two minutes’ silence on Armistice Day on November 11.
A centre spokesperson said: “Our wreath installation provides a place in which we can come together in support and respect for our fallen soldiers.”
