Hi There Everyone,
In NZ we are doing well with the making and collecting of the poppies. Todays count – 813!
We have many people here on board now from RSA’s to craft groups. Even schools are getting on board and children are making felt ones which is lovely. So far we have 200 members on our Facebook page (5000 Poppies NZ). Everyone have been so supportive in this huge endeavour.
The only snag we have at the moment is where to display our beautiful poppies. Unfortunately the Auckland War Museum has declined to display them. So this has slowed the organising of it a little. At this stage loads of emails have gone out to venues in the hope someone will see the merit in what we are doing and jump on board and help. Once we know where the display will be we will let everyone know.
Thank you to everyone so far who has contributed, given advice and asked questions. We appreciate it.
