The exhibition was heralded by an amazing dragon statue that was surrounded by poppies.there were reading and poetry that told about the horrors of the War and its’ devastating effects. Demi and Libbie read the poem ‘In Flanders Field’ by John McCrae. It was a moving commemoration of the battle of Mametz Wood and connects the students and their work to the Rhondda Remembers WW1 Heritage Lottery Young Roots project.
