Remembrance Day: The poppy waterfalls and remembrance arch made of plastic bottles in Bolton

We visited the site in Stoneclough to view the Remembrance Day poppy waterfall installation made of plastic bottles.

A beautiful bright poppy waterfall installation is back again in Greater Manchester. The poppy waterfalls cascade down both sides of Ringley Old Bridge in Bolton and this year they are joined by a purple remembrance arch to recognise the animals that served during wartime.

Veteran David De Souza and his wife Lisa are the ones behind the art installation in Stoneclough and have talked about the importance of educating children on Remembrance Day and honouring our fallen soldiers.

Each poppy is made from recycled plastic bottles painted with acrylic paint.

Each waterfall has been made with over 4,000 poppies created from recycled plastic poppies, and the purple remembrance arch has been hand painted entirely by one married couple.

On Remembrance Sunday, David and Lisa will be holding a candlelight Remembrance service at 6pm. They will be lighting up the bridge with candlelight for the fallen soldiers. To donate to their justgiving page, click here.
