Magnificent Poppy Display

Wednesday 21st August 2019

In July 2016, the 14th North West Durham (Lanchester) Company started on a project to make and display 2,500 air dry clay poppies in the grounds of their Church to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War 1. With the magnificent help of the whole village including local schools 4,118 poppies were completed and displayed in four different locations within the village. Some poppies were sold at the end of the display and £14,700 was raised for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. Eric Hepplewhite said “From July 2016 until November 2018 our Company played a major role in the project with one of our Leaders having the vision for the project and driving it forward. We appeared on BBC local news coverage and took an active part in our own villages Festival of Remembrance. I am extremely proud that our Company took such an active role in the project which can only have increased the profile of The Boys’ Brigade locally”.
