PUBLISHED: 07:00 05 June 2014
Poppies were planted as part of a national campaign to commemorate the centenary of the first world war.
Members of the East Wickham and Welling War Memorial Trust Linda Clayton, Phyllis Wilkinson, Roger Fern, Christine Fern and Nigel Betts undertook the project.
They were joined by Tony Nield. manager of Hall Place Estate, and Kirsty Macklen, Bexley Museum’s collections manager, in planting the poppy plugs by the Hall Place visitor centre.
This is part of a Heritage funded project called “Welling will remember them” which is led by the War Memorial Trust.
The poppies will remain where they are for people to enjoy.
The Hall Place gardens are free to visit and the poppies are situated in the walled nursery complex which remains open from 9am to 5pm every day.
