PUPILS from Castle Mead Primary School joined residents and staff at Trowbridge Oaks Care Home for a two minute silence on Monday morning to commemorate those lost at war.

Poppies were worn and flags were flown in pride at the home's Remembrance event which brought two generations together.

Both the children and elderly exchanged Remembrance stories and memories from the war.

Activities co-ordinator Ray Horan said: "We wanted to come together with the school pupils to remember those who sacrificed everything for us.

"You often hear about young people not understanding or not appreciating the importance of Remembrance, but we wanted to show that many youngsters do take an interest in our country's history and pay their respects to those who lost their lives at war so we could live the lives of freedom we do today.

"It was a lovely thing for everyone to take part in."
