A PERMANENT tribute to commemorate war heroes was unveiled in a Denbighshire village this week.

Over the past century, the poppy has become synonymous with honouring our war heroes ahead of and on Armistice Day (November 11).

In recognition of this, a permanent installation was made at Trefnant Village Hall on Tuesday.

Llandudno Junction-based Approved Resin Driveways was commissioned by Val Roberts, Trefnant Village Hall vice chairman, to re-produce a striking two-metre resin bound poppy in the grounds of the memorial garden.

It will now remain permanently outside of the hall as a symbol of Remembrance in tribute to the many who have lost their lives in battle.

Val Roberts said: “Whilst considering the landscaping of the area around the village hall, we decided it was the ideal opportunity to create a bold mosaic that would complement the monument.

"Given the historical relevance of the poppy in battlefields, it was the obvious choice. As a symbol of commemoration, it resonates with people of all generations.

"We’re really impressed with the installation made by Approved Resin Driveways."

Matt Bestall, managing director at Approved Resin Driveways, said: “It was a privilege to be asked to install this feature, which we hope will act as a fitting tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

"It's a fitting tribute to remember those who gave their lives so that we could live ours."

Approved Resin Driveways are resin bound gravel specialists based in Llandudno Junction, who cover North Wales and the North West.
