Poppies at Crimond House

Crimond House Care Home in Fraserburgh is ensuring that its residents and staff are ready for Remembrance Day with a stunning weeping window cascade display.

Staff at Crimond House have installed a 250-strong poppy display outside the Meallmore-run care home ahead of Remembrance Day, which takes place tomorrow, Wednesday, 11 November.

Speaking of the project, Lorraine Minty, care home manager at Crimond House, said: “The residents and staff have really enjoyed hand-making these paper poppies, which has kept us busy over the last  few weeks. As this year's appeal and remembrance services have been hampered by the current restrictions caused by the pandemic, we wanted to do something to mark the day. It’s fantastic to see this stunning weeping window cascade outside our care home to honour Remembrance Day and to pay our respects.

“All of our residents and staff members have spent a lot of time putting together this tribute for Remembrance Day. We’re all looking at it with enormous pride and I’d like to say thanks to everyone who contributed for strengthening the real sense of community at our home."
