Reeds Rains supports Portishead in Bloom

Reeds Rains Portishead is supporting local volunteers in their quest to create a bottle top art display to mark 100 years since the end of World War 1.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of red and black plastic tops from milk cartons, juice bottles and similar, are needed by members of community group, Portishead in Bloom, for a poppy display to mark the centenary next year. The volunteers want to make 64 poppies from the bottle tops to commemorate the 64 men from Portishead who lost their lives in the Great War and display them at the entrance to the town or in a local park area.

Reeds Rains has thrown open its High Street office doors to act as a collection point for the bottle tops.
