Poppies Return for ANZAC Day

Our community poppies returned for this year's ANZAC Day service at Blacktown Hospital.

More than 1000 poppies were handmade by community members and staff to commemorate the 100th anniversay of the end of WWI last year, and this year our ANZAC Memorial Garden was blooming again for Western Sydney Local Health District's service.

The service included a moving reading of the poem In Flanders Fields, a bugler and bagpiper.

Thank you hospital volunteer Barbara who helped us put out the poppies before the service.

The poppy project is part of our Kaleidoscope arts and culture program for stage 2.

The ANZAC Memorial Garden was created as part of our stage 1 arts and culture program.
