Fed Square Anzac Day 2014

I can’t quite believe that more than a week has passed since our wonderful day in Fed Square on Anzac Day … we were swamped literally from the moment we set up at 9.00 a.m. …. until we had to drag Janet Welch away from her adoring public at 4.30 …. such was the interest in the project.  We had visitors from all over the globe sitting making poppies with us, and it was such a beautiful day for the marchers.  We had a really lovely time making poppies … teaching … and just chatting about the project.  So thank you to all who participated …. and a special thanks to those who were there to help out on the day …  as they say … a picture says a thousand words ….

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.

    It warms the heart to see so many people happily working together with the common goal of making poppies, and obviously enjoying themselves. 5000 poppies not only commemorates the centenary of Anzac, it brings people and communities together-and that certainly is a good thing. Thanks again for letting us all be a part of the project. Faye Snell-Clements
