We are Proud of Our British Heritage

December 2nd, 2014

Parkside Academy Year 10 pupil, Luke King travelled to the Tower of London with his Cadet group last weekend and was involved in the making and planting of the Poppies.

The Tower of London’s poppy installation covers an area equivalent to 16 football pitches and includes almost 1 million hand made poppies. 90 tonnes of steel was used to creat the stems of the poppies, which vary in length from 1m to 50cm.

Luke was very honoured to be amongst the teams of volunteers involved in the assembly of each flower and was even invited to Downing Street.
