poppyTo mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War the RRC is exhibiting Images of Remembrance.

At present, the exhibition contains images contributed by RRC members, Libby Harris, Sean Smith, Framwellgate School in Durham, and Holywell CofE School in Cranfield that are mostly poppy-related – if you would like to contribute your own images, please contact us.

This Powerpoint presentation (used with permission) demonstrates what staff and pupils at Holywell Church of England School, Cranfield did to create their own Garden of Remembrance.
