Through contacts made at the Arts and Edges Summit last year in Kalgoorlie, the Shire of Merredin and the Merredin Fine Arts Society are reaching out for support for their Operation Field of Poppies project. The project is targeting 10,000 poppies to line the town’s main road. Poppies can be made from recycled plastic bottles, plastic plates, clay, knitted, crocheted, sewn fabrics, wood or steel.
All donations of poppies will be gratefully received and should be sent to Marilyn Sayers, the
Community Liaison Officer at the Shire of Merredin, PO Box 42, MERREDIN WA 6415. If there is a big cost in getting them sent, Marilyn has asked for people to contact her on 08 9041 1611 to work out a solution.
