Fleetwood in Bloom Poppy Remembrance

This year Fleetwood Museum asked residents to paint a poppy in memory of a loved one lost at sea, at war or a family member who was seagoing. It’s part of Fleetwood Town Councils In Bloom project to turn 10,000 plastic bottles into a sea of Remembrance for the anniversary of WW1.

Call into the Museum to see the finished installation on display in the Harriet boat shed.
