The poppy bed by Bray village hall was first sown with Flanders poppies in 2014, as a tribute to all the troops lost in World War One fighting for the country’s freedom. The poppies have self seeded every year since then and bloom every June and July. The flowering was finished in August when the 2 RHS National judges visited Bray.
A creative display was created in the poppy bed to enhance the bed, now deplete of real flowers, but filled with a stunning eye catcher.
The poppies in the photo were made up by Zoe Darling-Smith, a local resident, using a poppy wreath provided by Geoff Hayes, President of the Holyport Branch of The Royal British Legion, and ex Chairman of Bray Parish Council. Geoff also supplied the symbol which is a blow up of the pin badge issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Passchendaele.
The Bray in Bloom Committee thanks Zoe and Geoff for their help.
