MP backs 'Poppy Scatter' idea to help remember First World War victims on 100th anniversary
11:53am Wednesday 11th December 2013 in News
CONSERVATIVE MP David Morris has given his support to a new initiative to remember those who lost their lives in the First World War.
The 100th year anniversary of the start of the conflict will be commemorated in August nextt year.
The person behind the poppy scatter is Morecambe & Lunesdale resident Steve Trainor.
The idea is to plant poppies in flower beds across Morecambe and Lunesdale as a symbol of remembrance for those who did not return home.
The poppies will then be in full bloom by August.
David Morris MP said: “This really is an excellent idea to enable everyone in Morecambe & Lunesdale to remember those who did not come home after the First World War.”
“Watching poppies grow in flower beds right across the constituency will be a fitting tribute of remembrance and will serve as a reminder for all generations of the sacrifices that were made.”
