A Field in Woking

The Woking Library Poppy Project called on local residents to make enough hand-made poppies to represent every person whose name was engraved on a war memorial in Woking Borough. 750 poppies were required and the response was wonderful, not just from individuals but from many community groups, schools, scouts, guides, brownies, cubs, local Women’s Institutes, churches and craft groups. The poppies are now displayed along the windows in the library in Gloucester Walk in Woking Town Centre.

The library is open Monday to Saturday from 9.30am. So do come along and see the poppies. On Remembrance Sunday, 11 November, the library will open specially to welcome visitors to view the poppies from 10.00am – 1.00pm.
