Is anyone organising an event to mark this occasion? Would be interested in what you are doing. Been asked to run an event, looking for ideas.
Thanks

You could try asking local people to create and contribute poppies in remembrance of someone known to them who served in the Great War. A small card could be placed by the poppies on a display giving a small amount of info about the person.  Poppies could be drawn, knitted or made of fabric or whatever.

This would be a striking and poignant way to show remembrance.  I believe Newcastle library once held such an exhibit.

Best Wishes :)

You could go for the way it was actually celebrated?
