Poppies for Prospect

Prospect locals one and all created a beautiful river of hand-made poppies to commemorate the 2015 ANZAC Day Centenary as part of the ‘Behind the Bullets and Barbed Wire’ exhibition, opened on 10 May 2015, which recognises local Prospect soldiers who fought in the First World War.

Poppies have been knitted, crocheted and sewn and made with materials such as wool, paper, fabric or felt. Free, local workshops were held for people to learn how to knit, crochet and sew the poppies with all materials provided by City of Prospect 

“Making poppies allows us to pay tribute to the contribution of Australians who have served in conflicts since the First World War and keeps in the forefront of our minds those who give their service to our country today,” said Mayor David O’Loughlin.

The poppies were on display outside Prospect Gallery, 1 Thomas St, Nailsworth.

Lest we forget.
