I paid a visit to the Southend Schools Festival of Remembrance, hostd by Blade Education. I am pictured here with Beth Hooper from Blade.
This festival has been created by pupils from 25 schools.
There are thousands of hand made poppies in a display that represens a waterfall-type design.
The festival is in place unil Monday. It can be found at the cliffs in Westcliff-on-Sea, near the cenotaph. Yes, in Milton ward.
