Poppies for Remembrance
In recent years, members of our community contributed thousands of hand crafted poppies for the Centenary of World War One remembrance 5000 Poppies project. This project is still going strong with major installations being planned towards the end of the year to acknowledge the end of the War in 1918.
In recognition of the end of the war, the home crafts pavilion will be decorated with handcrafted poppies. These can take any form including knitted, crocheted, felted or paper poppies even paper- mache.
The community is invited to contribute to the display. Please drop off your poppies to Whittlesea Library or direct to the Agricultural Society by Wednesday 31 October.
