Poppy Project

poppies

To mark the centenary of the Armistice in 2018 we are asking local people to create poppies, one for each of the Norfolk men who lost their lives in the First World War. The 15,500 poppies will be displayed in libraries around the county.

As the weather gets colder and the nights draw in, there’s nothing we like better than a good crafting session. Have a go yourself, with friends, or get your local Knit and Knatter/WI group/Brownie Pack involved. Poppies can be made from any material you like – these beautiful flowers were made by some creative visitors to Heritage Sunday this weekend.

Find out how to get involved in the project here, and get in touch if you would like to contribute. We look forward to seeing your creativity in action!
