Lymington Artist’s Brilliant Poppy Tribute to the Fallen

poppies 01As I was driving home this evening, I was listening to Louisa Hannon on BBC Radio Solent. She was interviewing Michael Turner, who is an artist from Lymington, Hampshire, who specialises in steel sculptures. Michael came up with a brilliant idea to support the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal, which supports all current and former British military personnel.

He has made eleven beautiful, steel and lacquer poppies and, throughout the day, he has distributed them around Lymington and posted photographs of them, in location, on his Facebook page. Anybody who found them could keep them in return for a donation to the Poppy Appeal.

For more on this story, and to see the poppy locations, please follow the link to Michael’s FB page.
