Flanders Poppies 22/05/2017

We have financed the purchase of Flanders Poppy seeds and have been out and about planting them in various locations about the town. With the help of pupils from St Joseph's, the John Rankin Schools and Falkland Primary, seeds have been planted in their school grounds and Falkland War Memorial. Town Councillors have helped to plant the seeds in sites across the town that have links to the two World Wars. It is hoped that these seeds will produce flowers every year as a constant reminder of the sacrifices made by our troops in conflict.
