Over the three days of the event in October -16th 17th and 18th the Le Fevres Organisation provided a large stand for us to promote the YPRES 2016 Event.
The stand was set up with samples of both the blacksmith and children made poppies, the model of the Cenotaph and a collection box in the style of a WW1 Ammunition Box. Tee shirts, sweat shirts and hoodies were also available to purchase in support of the event.
An anvil with tooling used for making the children’s poppies was set up and displayed, also included were some poppy blanks and a selection of made poppies.
Over the three days we were there, a great deal of interest was generated by our stand, and we attracted many visitors.
The organisers also visited us twice daily promoting the event by interviewing Corinne, Christine and Julianna through the events public address system.
