We went to the launch of the Poetry Exhibition (mostly Female but including Wilfred Owen who visited the town in 1916 while he was at the Gunnery School in Fleetwood) at Blackpool Central Library, Blackpool, Lancashire, UK on 4th August 2014. The lovely people at the Library planted some poppies on the little piece of grass outside and they looked amazing yesterday, so we took a photo to share with you all. WE WILL REMEMBER THEM ALL
During WW1, the white feather was used as a symbol of cowardice. Now, however, it is a symbol of hope and peace. There were loads of white feathers near the poppies yesterday
