Children across Halesowen & Rowley Regis spent the week leading up to Remembrance Sunday sending in pictures of poppy displays, which James posted on his Facebook page throughout the day.
There was a high level of artwork sent in, including from pupils at Reddal Hill Primary School and Our Lady & St Kenelms. One submission even featured a red pepper creatively displayed in the shape of a poppy.
Despite the scaled-down Remembrance Sunday commemorations due to Covid 19 restrictions, James was still able to lay wreaths at the cenotaphs in Halesowen, Rowley Regis, Cradley Heath and Cradley, alongside other local dignitaries.
"I want to thank all the children who got involved and sent me their poppy pictures", said James. "As well as being a fun opportunity for them to get creative, it was also an opportunity for them to learn about the importance of Remembrance Sunday and the sacrifices made by previous generations.
"I am always honoured to take part in the ceremonies in my constituency, and even though they were different this year the importance and poignancy was as strong as ever."
