Commemorative Poppy Installation

Assembling poppies for Armistice Day

Hawkesbury Central Library and the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery has been hosting monthly poppy making days since April with over 6,000 poppies knitted or crocheted by the enthusiastic and dedicated crafters of the Hawkesbury. These poppies have now been made into an installation to commemorate the centenary of the end of WWI. This long-term installation is on display in the atrium of the Deerubbin Centre in Windsor.

A big thank you is due to all contributors: the many, many people who have made poppies, either at home, or at the sessions held in the Library since the beginning of the year, and to all those who helped to create the installation.

Come along to the Deerubbin Centre, 300 George Street, Windsor, to view this commemoration to those who have served in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations, and to celebrate the community spirit involved in the making of this tribute.
