Frankley Carnival committee and the Friends of Balaam’s Wood Local Nature Reserve are creating a memorial poppy tree to remember all those who made sacrifices in the First World War, 100 years on from the day Britain declared itself at war with Germany.
The tree will be constructed from branches gathered in the Balaam’s Wood Nature Reserve, beside the River Rea.
Participants will be able to write a personal message of remembrance – a memorial message or a poem or appropriate sentiment – on the back of a poppy and add it to the creation by Arden Road shops. Poppies will be available by the tree, or pop in to Frankley Library to collect and write your message with a cuppa.
You can share your thoughts and images on twitter using the hashtag #FrankleyPoppyTree and view all the tweets on the Frankley Poppy Tree tweet wall
When: Monday 4th August 2014 – Frankley Library open 9am-5pm. Tree building commences at 10.30am.
Where: in front of Arden Road shops, Frankley B45 0JA and Frankley Library
If you can’t make it during the day tomorrow, why not make your own paper poppy and add it to the tree when you can?
