What is the Poppy Project?
Inspired by the Victorian 5000 Poppies initiative, CWL staff and families started creating poppies some months ago. A few grew into a field and we decided to ask the community to help us make a poppy for every serviceman and woman from Orange and surrounding districts. Want to help? Download your Poppy Pack, hand make one or more knitted, crocheted, sewn or felted poppies and drop in to the library.
