Red poppies will soon bloom around two new benches situated in Harthill’s wildflower meadow up Winney Hill.

People can now sit and admire the spectacular view from the seats. One is a memorial bench donated by a villager, the other commemorates the village’s fallen soldiers and was bought by Harthill Parish Council.

An inscription reads: ‘To commemorate the fallen of this Parish in two world wars’.

A spokesman thanked everyone who helped with the project, including handyman Jim Ellam and farmer Steven Skepper whose tractor was used to carry the benches up the hill.
