Carterton Primary School pupils are planting wildflower seeds in their own miniature memorial gardens in memory of fallen servicemen and women.

The children were given native wildflower seeds by housebuilder Annington in partnership with the Commonwealth War Graves Foundation.

Emma Wells at Carterton Primary School commented: “It’s very important to us to teach the children about our history, and the donation of seeds will help us to encourage them to remember those who died in the World Wars. We look forward to seeing our miniature memorial gardens bloom over the coming months.”

Louise Saunders, Sales and Marketing Manager at Annington, added: “Many families in Carterton have strong military ties, thanks to the town’s proximity to the RAF base at Brize Norton. We hope that the wildflower seeds will offer a fitting tribute to our fallen Service women and men, and bring their memories back to life.”
