MAYLANDS library will hold a red poppies workshop today (Saturday November 10), the eve of Remembrance Day.
At the free workshop artist Geraldine Pillinger will help locals make their own red poppy pins or badges.
Bayswater mayor Dan Bull says this year’s Remembrance Day marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, which ended World War I.
“Each year, Remembrance Day is an opportunity for our whole community to pay their respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms we often take for granted,” he says.
“This workshop provides community members with an opportunity to acknowledge this important day in a tangible way.
“Our libraries are a rich source of information and I would encourage community members to feel free to browse the huge array of books, magazines and digital resources available.”
The workshop, open to all ages, is from 10-11am at the Maylands Library on Eighth Avenue.
