In November 2016 pre-schools and primary schools in Ongar collaborated on a unique piece of art to commemorate Remembrance Day at Zinc.
To help this vision come to life each school took part in multiple workshops at the centre, working alongside professional artists, participants created individual poppies which collectively formed the beautiful installation.
In addition, students engaged in historical displays, watched videos of Ongar residents during the evacuation and even experienced taking shelter in a simulated air raid!
Zinc would like to thank all collaborating groups and supporters who made this vision come to life:
Chipping Ongar Primary School, High Ongar Primary School, Moreton C of E Primary School, Ongar Primary School, Truly Scrumptious, Fyfield Pre School, Poppets Day Nursery, Ongar Kids Club, Holly Trees, Bright Stars, and ABC.
In addition they would like to thank:
Yasmine Lynch, Roy Strutt, Stage One, Jimmy Ray, Jewsons of Ongar, The DIY Store, Lorna Vaux, Ongar Millenium History Society, 3 Great Stony Park, Sonia Cakebread, Grainger and Sue Davis.
