A CWMBRAN street has been decked out with giant red poppies, after an army veteran decorated it for charity.
Graham Betty, who lives in Rosemead, Greenmeadow, decided he wanted to raise money for the Royal British Legion.
He said: “I thought having poppies over the lamp posts, road signs and some houses would be a good way to make money for the charity.
“I’ve raised £70 so far.
“My partner and I did this. It didn’t take us that long to do - it must have taken us two evenings.”
Mr Betty, who volunteers with Be The Best British Military Fitness, added: “I left the army in 2014 because I had post traumatic stress order.
“People in the armed forces do a good job.
“I don’t want them to be forgotten. Doing what I’ve done will not only raise money but will raise awareness.”
Resident Sonya Pink said: “I think it is a fantastic idea to decorate the whole street as a sign of respect to all those who have given their lives. 
“This has now become a cause supported by the whole street. 
“Together we have now nicknamed the street ‘Poppymead’.”
Another Rosemead resident, Julie Jones, said the street looks “lovely”.
“Having these poppies brightens up the place and they look lovely,” added Mrs Jones.
“This is wonderful of Graham and more so because it’s all for charity.
“I’ve already donated and will make another one too.”
