Poppy Artwork to Commemorate WWI

In Teddington, a five foot high artwork has been installed to commemorate the First World War.

The poppy was unveiled in Elmfield Gardens in Teddington. It is one of three, handmade by the Camelia Botnar Foundation, and will remain until the end of the Centenary commemorations.

The poppy has been a popular symbol of commemoration for nearly one hundred years – when delicate silk poppies were sold in November 1921 to remember loved ones lost and to raise money for soldiers and their families.
