It has been looming for the last couple of weeks that incredible milestone of 10,000 … and today … we hit it.  Big celebration (in my mind) here … and Marg and I could not be more thrilled and inspired.  Everyday brings new poppies, new stories and new joys.  We are so humbled by your incredible commitment to this wonderful project …  Thank you Thank you.

Only 15,000 to go lol!!!


About 5000 Poppies

The 5000 Poppies Project is a community tribute of respect and remembrance for our servicemen and women, their families and their communities. Created in 2013 by sisters in law Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight in honour of their fathers service in WWII, the project has been closely aligned with the Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018, and has consisted of a number of small and large scale installations made from handcrafted poppies from many thousands of contributors from all over the world.
