Go red for World War One commemoration

The Co-Operative funeralcare in Girvan’s Dalrymple Street are urging people to ‘go red’ as a mark of respect for the 100th anniversary of World War One next year.

And on October 30, they enlisted the help of the kids at Girvan Nursery School to promote the campaign.

Unfortunately the weather on the day was predicted to be too wild, so the poppies weren’t sown at Girvan Community Garden.

However, that will happen very soon and the poppies will be in full bloom by Spring.

Eleanor Rae from The Co-operative Funeralcare, said: “To commemorate the huge sacrifice made by millions of men and women during the Great War, we are joining the campaign to help cover the UK in real Flanders poppies during 2014 and would encourage people to collect poppies and get sowing.”
