Your Bromley helps town centre remember with poppy display

Posted on: November 17, 2016


Giant poppies have been installed on Bromley High Street every year since 2012 to commemorate Armistice Day and help the people of Bromley remember those killed or injured in the two world wars in more recent conflicts. 2016 is no exception as over 800 huge poppies were installed on 1st November.

The poppies have been funded this year by the businesses of Bromley, and managed by Your Bromley, the Business Improvement District for the town centre. They will be in situ for the first two weeks of November, encouraging shoppers and town centre visitors to take a moment to think about the sacrifices made for us in the past and to this day.

Frances Forrest, manager of Your Bromley, the business improvement district for Bromley, commented: “In today’s fast paced world it’s important to take a moment to reflect as Armistice Day is commemorated. The High Street’s giant poppies have become a popular symbol at this time of year and we’re delighted that we’re able to continue to pay our respects in this way in 2016.”

The Bromley Business Improvement District (BID) is a business led and business funded scheme to improve Bromley town centre through additional services and new initiatives and aims to promote Bromley to visitors old and new.
