A field of poppies at Oakham Castle

It was magnificent to have horses from the Melton Defence Animal Centre at Oakham Castle yesterday for the opening of the ‘ Project. Rutland may be a small county but we live up to our motto – a lot in a little. Yesterday was a huge success. Do go along and look at the poppies.  All made by Rutlanders, every one is different.  They go on sale after 24th November, proceeds to The Royal British Legion.

Thank you especially  to all those at Catmose College for being the hub of the project.  Without the kilns and the staff’s  support this fabulous community art installation could not have happened at Oakham Castle and we would not have had yesterday’s fantastic event. Well done everyone, particularly Vickie G!
