Borough’s Poppy Displays Honour Wartime Efforts

IMG_7528Surrey Heath residents are being reminded of the efforts of those involved in the First World War, Second World War and more recent conflicts, thanks to a vibrant array of lamp post poppies on display around the Borough.

Around 1,000 poppies – with two fitted on each lamp post – are currently being displayed around the Borough, including in Camberley Town Centre and by the A30 London Road War Memorial, on Deepcut Bridge Road, Frimley High Street and at Watchetts Shopping parade, Frimley Road.

The display forms part of the Borough’s series of Remembrance events over this coming weekend.

These include a series of First World War heritage events in a free special afternoon at The Mall Camberley onSaturday 8 November and a series of Remembrance services on Sunday 9 November.

A limited number of the large event poppies featured around the Borough will be available for people to write their centenary commemoration messages on from 12 to 4pm in the Mall on Saturday 8 November 2014.

These will be then publicly displayed on the lawn in front of the Council offices in Knoll Road, Camberley. A minimum voluntary donation of £2.50 is requested per poppy, contributing towards the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

The poppy display has been organised by West End Parish Council, Bisley Parish Council, Chobham Parish Council and Windlesham Parish Council, as well as Surrey Heath Borough Council.
