The Kent County Show will be marking the centenary of the end of the First World War with a community built knitted poppy display. Hosted inside the Garden Life Marquee, the display will remember those who lost their lives in the conflict.

To create the memorial, the Show is appealing to members of the public to send in their hand crafted poppies. Poppies can be knitted, crocheted or crafted from felt. Contributors can send in their details to be included in a contributors list and can also dedicate their poppies if they wish.

Use the below submission form to be included in the Contributors List and to dedicate your poppies. Also use the form to find knitted and crocheted poppy patterns.

The Royal British Legion

The Kent Remembers display will include the Royal British Legion’s ‘Every One Remembered’ statue. Visitors will be invited to make a donation and add a paper poppy to the statue. The ‘Every One Remembered’ statue aims to raise awareness and support for the work the Royal British Legion does for the British Armed Forces, veterans and their families.
