Anzac Day at Fed Square

Just a reminder to all you wonderful poppy people who are organised and already planning next weeks activities.

We have a big Poppy Playtime planned for Fed Square from 11.00 a.m. until 4.00 p.m.

Sues anzac poppies

Bring your friends, your hooks/needles, red yarn and a chair if you wish (not sure how many will be turning up but hoping for a crowd).  There will be a small amount of red black and green yarn … some commercial felt poppy kits and with any luck some Anzac Biscuits to share.

We will be making poppies and talking about poppies all day … so come for as long as you like … we will be there.  Bring a picnic lunch or partake of many of the yummy goodies in Fed Square.  Pray for a lovely day … especially for the marchers.  If the weather is good we will be in the upper square … if not so good … we will be in the atrium downstairs.

Even if you don’t want to make a poppy … come along and say hi!

If you would like to donate some yarn, needles (3.75 or 4.00 mm or crochet hooks 3.5 or 4.00 mm) we would gratefully receive them.

Hope to see you there.






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.
