    Poppy Plea: Commemorating 1914-18 
    Thu 15 Mar & Wed 28 Mar

    Use your creative skills to take part in a county wide act of remembrance for the men and women of Norfolk who lost their lives in World War One. Norfolk Library Service plans to display a poppy for each of the fallen listed on Norfolk's war memorials. That's well over 15,000 people. All the poppies will be displayed in Norwich during Oct 2018 and then split into smaller displays, in the county’s libraries, for 11 Nov 2018. Today, join Library staff to make a poppy, or deliver any that you've made already.  Materials will be provided at Makers Month sessions. Poppies can be made to any design, but must be no more than 10cm x 10cm (4in x 4in).
