Planting Poppies in Harrison Park
Hugh Halcrow, Bridget Stevens and Tom Graveson of Merchiston Community Council joined PC Wotton and colleague to poppy seeds in Harrison Park on Saturday 24 March. The poppy seeds were supplied by the Ancre Somme Association Scotland. The Association is leading a UK-wide initiative to form a blanket of poppies across the country that will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. This poppy “ribbon” will be a living legacy to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
