Rotary club presents Centenary Poppies to local schools

The Rotary Club of Crewe & Nantwich Weaver has presented eight Nantwich primary schools with a poppy from the Tower of London to congratulate and remind them of their school projects around the World War 1 Centenary.

A number of the Club’s members visited the schools, generally at a School Assembly, to present individual poppies.

John Cheshire, Chairman of the Club’s Youth Service Committee said “This was our club’s response to a national Rotary initiative to ensure that the significance of the 2014 Centenary of the commencement of World War 1 was fully recognised, especially by the younger generation.”

He added “All of the schools had undertaken their own commemorations last year and still had impressive artwork and written work on display. Each school was very pleased to receive their poppy and these will be proudly displayed and be a feature of their Remembrance Day Commemorations in years to come ” .

The Primary Schools to which poppies were presented were Weaver, Wyche, St. Annes, Millfields, Acton, Wybunbury Delves, Stapeley Broad Lane and Bridgemere.
