The 2nd Stoke Gifford Rainbow Unit have been putting the finishing touches to their Armistice Day tribute. The Rainbows have been getting crafty and have made hundreds of pom poms in red & black and purple & black in order to honour the fallen soldiers and animals.
The pom poms will be used to adorn the Stoke Gifford Toy Library, both inside and out and will be in place ready for the Stoke Gifford Remembrance Day parade (details below).
The photo above shows a trial run of the external decorations; these will be reinstated on the day of the parade.
Poppy decorations inside the toy library will be installed on 1st November.
