The Welwyn Garden City Coronation Fountain has been decorated with poppies to mark 100 years since the end of World War I, ‘Battle’s Over’.

Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council organised the tribute, and the unveiling was attended by mayor councillor Barbara Fitzsimon, chief executive Rob Bridge and representatives from the Royal British Legion.

Councillor Fitzsimon, said: “I know that I speak for my colleagues at the borough council as well as myself when I say that we are proud to honour those brave men and women who fought for our country in the First World War.

“I am pleased to see the fountain adorned with such an iconic symbol to help us remember those who have given their lives in conflicts across the globe.”
