Lea Community Primary School are appealing for stories, pictures, memorabilia or anything about our brave heroes who fought in World War I.

Roger Baines MBE on behalf of the school says year 6 want to do some research on the Great War and intend to create a peace garden in the school grounds.

If anyone has photographs they could copy for their project that would be great.

Roger and a friend visited the school to see what they need to create the peace garden. They will help the children with the design, hopefully with an emblem in flowers in the middle, planters across the back and wild red poppies around the sides of the garden.

They also want to create a section for pupils and people to come along and place their own poppy and crosses on the 100th anniversary.

Pupils will have the chance to go on a school trip to Flanders field and othr sites to pay their respect, so any help at all with Photos or stories or memorabilia would be very helpful.

A great way to teach the young to pay their respect to the heroes that kept our Country free.

Roger Baines is, a community worker from Preston who is soon to received his MBE from The Queen at Buckingham in 2009. 

If you want to help Roger’s email is karena98@blueyonder.co.uk

What do you think about Roger’s idea? Do you have any memorabilia to share with the school?
