Planting poppies for centenary

Daventry District Council is encouraging groups to take part in The Big Poppy Plant to mark the centenary of World War One.

The project will see poppies planted along with additional native species to also improve biodiversity. The project will run in conjunction with other commemorative activities and community groups can get involved by planting poppy seeds during March and April. They can find out more at a meeting at the Abbey Centre, in Daventry, on Wednesday, January 29 from 6.30-7.30pm. Anyone wishing to attend should complete the ‘community project information form’ available online at DDC’s website .
