Interesting idea for the WWI Centenary 2014-2018

Date published: 23 July 2013

Cllr Alan McCarthy, Rochdale Armed Forces Champion, says: "There is a group that are suggesting we sow poppy seeds this summer so next year, for the centenary of the start if the First World War, there will be thousands of poppies in bloom around the country.

"Poppy seeds are dirt cheap - £1 for 10k - so won't cost individuals very much but the effect should be stunning.

"This kind of project would be best done through local councils for obvious legal implications to the general public, quite sure an area in each town/city could be identified by relevent authorities that could be used."
