Poppy Painting

Rugby Borough Council website:

 "Children from Pathfinders Day Nursery joined forces with residents at Bilton House for the poppy painting session, which supports the theme of this year's gardening contest - the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Rugby Borough Council has created hundreds of wooden poppies to adorn the replica Webb Ellis Trophy ahead of its return to Dunchurch Road, overlooked by the statue of William Webb Ellis.

And Rugby Art Gallery and Museum's arts development team has recruited a team of poppy painters to decorate the wooden blooms, working with organisations such as Age UK's Claremont Centre, Works 4 Me and Express, the Benn Partnership Centre's art group."
