Congratulations to the staff and students at John of Rolleston School for the ‘poppy’ photo and article in the Burton Mail today. It further adds to the significant number of Remembrance displays and activities in and around our village.

Last term some children produced the poppy formation on the school field and it was photographed using a drone. The cards represent the 153 soldiers from Rolleston on Dove who took part in World War 1. The red cards represent those who survived and the black cards the 27 who died. The data was collected by members of the Rolleston on Dove History Group.
