Decorating Plymouth council house with poppies.

 

MKC Heroes were asked by councillor Pauline Murphy, Plymouth City Forces Champion, to decorate the front of Plymouth council house so schools sent in hundred of home made poppies.

 

Heather, Jono and Pete spent hours attaching them to a net and then suspending them at the front of the building.

The Poppy Bake off is an annual MKC Heroes Competition where school children have the opportunity to design and bake a poppy themed cake that represents the sentiments of remembrance. This year, there were 48 entries from 19 different schools.  The competition is not just a culinary event, it provides an opportunity for families to share an activity that focuses on remembrance and helps children to understand the significance of this time of year.

The cakes were judged by the Lord Mayor and representatives from: the Royal British Legion; the Royal Navy; 29 Commando Royal Artillery; 165 Port and Maritime Brigade; Veterans and the Salvation Army.

The winning cake was designed and baked by Rebecca from Plymstock  school with runners up, Charlie and Phoebe from Oreston and Rocco and Lola from Mary Dean’s and Heles.

All the cakes were amazing and the Lord Mayor thanked everyone who had entered the competition and congratulated them on their work.

Following the competition, the children donated their cakes to the Salvation Army hostel for homeless people.
