Remembrance at Riverside
At Riverside we had lots of reflective moments this week being creative making poppies to proudly display around our home for Remembrance Sunday. Residents and staff thought about the past, remembering war heroes and the fallen. For some of our residents it was particularly poignant with direct connections and strong memories of war times. Many had friends and family members who fought for our country. We are extremely proud to support the Armed Forces.
The bright red poppy is thought of as a resilient flower that managed to flourish despite many fields being destroyed by war. It is both a symbol of remembrance and hope for a peaceful future. The poppies look stunning and stand out around our home helping us all to remember.
