Lest We Forget Poppy Project

Listen

PoppyCreating poppies as a community tribute of respect and remembrance for Anzac Day 2015. This is one way the Campbelltown Community can honour those who sacrificed themselves in the war. The poppies will be showcased at The Gums Reserve War Memorial at the Anzac Dawn Service and as part of the National Community Tribute.

Council received approximately 2500 poppies.  200 were sent to be part of the National Collection and the rest were displayed at The Gums Dawn Service, Shakespeare Avenue, Tranmere on April 25, 2015. 

If you have any questions or would like to discuss the project please contact Tracy on 8366 9214.
