A Bedfordshire council has commissioned bespoke poppy railings to honour the dead in the refurbishment of its village war memorial.

Langford Parish Council contacted Huthwaite-based Alpha Rail to supply its renowned poppy style railings for war memorials in time for its celebrations to mark the 100-year anniversary since the end of World War One.

Alpha Rail supplied and installed black decorative railings and a matching single leaf gate to enable access to lay wreathes on the steps of the memorial. The finishing touch and overall visual effect was completed by adding plasma cut decorative poppies which were painted red and welded to alternative vertical bars.

Parish clerk Michelle Albone said: “Many thanks to all those who helped us get this together in time for Remembrance Day 2018. They look amazing and we have had so many comments on how wonderful they look.”
