SCHOOLCHILDREN have been playing their part in the Turn Tilehurst Red campaign by decorating poppy pebbles.

Pupils of all ages at Westwood Farm School had the chance to write messages on their stones, before placing them in the school grounds to make the shape of a poppy.

This is to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Ruth Scales, assistant head teacher, said: “It has been so nice to see our children take to this project.

“Even though it is 100 years on from the end of the war, children fully understand why it is important to remember those who fought.

“We are all very proud of the children for their efforts.”
