Poppies

Every November the humble poppy is a symbol of remembrance and has now been used as such for 101 years. The poppy reminds us that large scale war must never again be possible. A few years ago there was a magnificent display of artificial poppies cascading out of the Tower of London. The idea has been copied, involving thousands of people in making thousands of poppies and attaching them to nets, then draped from church towers. With such large scale reminders we will never forget.
