5000 Poppies at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance

Good morning team Poppy …

It’s a huge day at 5000 Poppies today … this afternoon, we will be installing some 200,000 poppies at Melbourne’s iconic Shrine of Remembrance in a very moving tribute of love, honour and respect for our servicemen and women, past and present, their families and their communities.

This is what our lovely little community project is all about.

So we are feeling excited and privileged to be at the Shrine with all of your beautiful poppies … alongside the Menin Gate Buglers to commemorate the 99th anniversary of the end of WWI.  What a spectacular tribute it will make.

The poppies will be at the Shrine until Sunday afternoon 12 November.  Hope you get a chance to come down and see us.
