School children in Bexhill made their own wreath for their Remembrance Day service and observed the two minute silence together.

The Willows class at Charters Ancaster Preparatory and Nursery School made a poppy wreath for the ceremony.

Four-year old Fred said: “We made it to remember all the soldiers.”

Older children held pictures to help remember all those who have suffered – and still suffer today – from the effects of warfare.

One picture showed Frank Taylor, a 19-year-old from Bexhill, who was killed during the First World War.

Others included evacuee children in World War Two and child refugees from today’s conflicts.

Head teacher Paula Radice said: “The children showed their respect, and their understanding of the sadness of war.

“We have been talking about how peace starts within each one of us, and with the way we treat each other.”
