UPDATE – we are now on our third thousand lot of poppies. All poppies are now £5.00 each but all proceeds are going to the Royal British legion.

This year is the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War One and the formation of the Royal Air Force and we are covering Morecambe in giant poppies.

In commemoration, Morecambe BID are supporting the Royal British Legion with the intention of covering the town in large poppies for the season. Morecambe BID is urging businesses to get behind this worthwhile scheme.

Help support our heroes by buying some poppies and displaying them prominently. Businesses in the BID zone can get two giant poppies for only £3.00 and all proceeds are in support of the Royal British Legion so please dig deep. Members of the public are welcome to purchase them for £3.00 each, still great value for money and all for a worthy cause. The poppies are made from a quality, long-lasting material and will also enhance the town for Morecambe in Bloom judging.

The poppies can be bought from the following locations:-

13 the Warehouse, Queen Street; the Management Suite at The Arndale Centre; Briggs Shoes, Marine Parade; and The Little Shop of Hobbies, Pedder Street
