Still … counting down to the big day ….

As you probably already know, we will be finishing up poppy assembly at the Town Hall Melbourne tomorrow (Thursday) which is disappointing because it has been such a wonderful venue for us.  Lots of space … lots of tourists and visitors … and SO much interest in what we are doing.

However, the good news is that we have now secured space at Morris and Sons in Collins Place – Level 1/234 Collins Street, Melbourne … just around the corner from the Town Hall. It’s not as big a space as the Town Hall so we will be pared down a bit … but they are excited about having us there and we are excited about being there. So NO POPPY ASSEMBLY ON FRIDAY….and I. SIMPLY. MUST. CATCH. UP. ON. ADMIN and my washing (but you don’t really need to know that).

We will resume at 10.00 a.m. this SATURDAY for the day. and then Monday to Friday 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. until we have completed our assembly. Would absolutely LOVE to see you there.

Can you please let me know what days you are planning to come by email (if you haven’t already)


Because we don’t have quite as much space at Morris and Sons as we have been lucky enough to have at the Town Hall, we need to keep a lid on the numbers.

A big thank you for your ongoing interest and support.  We havenow almost completed  Panel no. 49 of 80 which is simply an amazing achievement … only 31 to go … easy peasy.

Woohoo …. this is going to be big!!!!!

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.
