Remembrance Day at Coppelia House

Remembrance Day at Coppelia House

Our Homes all like to pay their respects on Remembrance Day, honouring all those that fought for our country.

Each Home created their own display within the Home or garden.  Coppelia House wanted to link their remembrance to their local community Moretonhampstead.

Resident Robert Beer who served in the RAF, went to the local memorial ceremony and laid a wreath on behalf of Coppelia residents and staff.

Within Coppelia’s garden, poppies were made by the residents, each poppy recorded the names of those lost from Moretonhampstead.  Residents also made purple poppy’s to pay tribute to the many animals lost in war.

Within the Home residents’ created a display to greet visitors. They also made poppy plaques for their front doors and decorated the dining room.

Residents watched the remembrance service which was especially poignant on the 100th anniversary since the end of the First World War.
