PRIMARY school pupils have created a remembrance memorial using recycled plastic.

Craft Club pupils from Parkside Primary Academy, on Midland Road, Royston, have collected, recycled and reused plastic bottles since September to make their own ‘Waterfall of Poppies’.

The pupils wanted to create their own memorial to display at the school as a tribute to those who have lost their lives or have been affected by war.

Rachel Ward, headteacher at Parkside, said: “We are so proud of how hard our children and teachers have worked to create this fantastic design.

“We’ve called the memorial ‘Parkside Remembers Them’ and it is a lasting reminder created to show how grateful we are to those who sacrificed their today for our tomorrow.”

Coun Pauline Makinson said: “It was a pleasure to go down and see the fruits of their labour. They worked very hard and and it’s a wonderful display which sits prominently a the entrance.

“Well done to the group for putting the effort in.”
