Little Paxton Remembers Poppy Sculpture

Little  Paxton Remembers Poppy Sculpture

A poppy sculpture was 'unveiled' this morning on the grass verge near the High Street entrance of St James Church.

The metal sculpture depicts six poppies which represent the six Little Paxton residents who gave their lives in World War 1, together with a Tommy's helmet, bayonet and cross. Poppies started growing in no man's land at Flanders during World War I.

The Parish Council would like to thank Mr Barry Carter (designer), Mr Kevin Rayner, Mr. Dan Marshall, Mr Neil McAleer and the team from KRBM Ltd who made and installed this magnificent piece of art which will ensure Little Paxton Remembers 1918-2018.
