The Local Authority is going to be marking the Poppy Appeal Launch this year with a fantastic and poignant installation of Poppy covered wire sculptural soldiers outside the Town Hall. We need as many poppies as possible to make our community project a success and would love our schools to get involved in creating some. There will be the opportunity for students to come over to the Town Hall and be part of the Official Havering Poppy Appeal Launch.
There are many ways to make them, we are happy with reusable plastic bottle options or card (paper will be too flimsy for outdoor conditions), with or without leaves and any size as long as we are able to fix wire to the back and attach them – please see a very approximate idea of what our soldiers will look like finished.
The Poppy Appeal will be launched at the end of October and poppies will need to be delivered to or collected by us at the Town Hall latest Thursday 24 October.
Please contact Natalie Campbell – firstname.lastname@example.org - as soon as possible if you would like to be involved in our project.
