A wall of more than 100 poppies has been created by adults with learning disabilities in Lincolnshire as a tribute to those lost in world conflicts.

Some 30 adult clients of Linkage Community Trust set up a poppy-making workshop during their day activities at the charity’s Torridon Court Enterprise Centre, Fairfield Industrial Estate in Louth, planning the layout and design. They also researched traditional words, memories and music associated with war.

They held a two-minute silence in front of their memorial on Tuesday.

Adult Skills Instructor Jan Hallifax said: “We all started discussing the forthcoming Remembrance Day commemorations, what it stood for and the poppies displayed in London, and that’s when the clients decided to make their own memorial.

“They came in wanting to make poppies since September.

“Researching the wars provoked some interesting discussions, and we held a coffee morning on Tuesday November 11 and held a two-minute silence.”

Rebecca Richardson, pictured, said: “We remember that people died and it’s important to have the silence.”
