Herne Hill School creates stunning Armistice tribute

Children at Herne Hill School have made a spectacular memorial for this weekend’s Armistice centenary.

The Primary School and reception children aged two to seven made the beautiful poppy art installation.

Their work coincides with a series of commemorative events across Southwark, marking one hundred years since the end of the First World War.

In Herne Hill, a minute’s silence will be held in Station Square on Sunday at 11am.

A Heritage Lottery funded project from the Herne Hill Society, working in partnership with The Charter School North Dulwich, has seen local volunteers is also recording the names, lives and deaths of every serviceman and civilian who died during World War One from the area.

They believe that up to 700 people from Herne Hill lost their lives.

The memorial website will be launched on the centenary of the armistice, on November 11 here.
