CROSSFLATTS Village Society have laid a memorial garden display to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Housing group Incommunities agreed to allow the display on a communal area by Lime Court flats, next to Keighley Road.

Incommunities gardeners teamed up with CVS volunteers to create the plot, planting it with red flowers bearing the figure ‘100’.

CVS members will maintain the garden, and plan to place memorial stone and poppy seeds in the coming months.

CVS chairman Tim Meggitt said: “A number of Crossflatts people lost their lives during the Great War and we wanted to honour everyone’s sacrifice as Remembrance Day approaches. It is particularly fitting as we come together for the Armistice centenary.

“We are planning to plant more flowers including poppies in the New Year and are exploring the possibility of a permanent memorial such as an engraved stone honouring those who died serving their country.

Geraldine Howley, Incommunities Group Chief Executive, said: “The society’s initiative is a lovely fitting tribute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and hopefully it will serve as a lasting community landmark for local people.”
