Sowing seeds at the poppy appeal

Have your say

Sea Cadets, scouts and girl guides joined representatives from Luton community groups to sow poppy seeds at Love Luton’s Poppy Appeal on Friday, May 9 at Wardown Park.

The Poppy Appeal is a four-year exercise to encourage local people to plant poppy seeds in remembrance of those who fought and died in the First World War and other battles.

Trevor Holden, chief executive, Luton Borough Council said: “The Luton Poppy Appeal is an excellent way of commemorating the outbreak of the First World War and gives communities the opportunity to acknowledge the huge sacrifices service men and women made in the war and continue to do so.”
