5000 Poppies Project,
which has been on display
at the Vietnam Veteran’s
Museum over the past
month, will soon be on
show at one of the world’s
most recognised events, the
RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Minister for Veterans
John Eren announced last
month that project creators
Lynn Berry and Margaret
Knight would accompany
acclaimed landscape gar-
dener Phillip Johnson, and
showcase the stunning col-
lection of handcrafted pop-
pies before the eyes of the
The state government is
contributing $200,000 to-
wards the tour.
The 5000 Poppies Proj-
ect was an ANZAC Cen-
effort, which saw some
250,000 (knitted) red pop-
pies “planted” in Federa-
tion Square as a tribute to
the Australian servicemen
and women killed in war,
conflicts or peacekeeping
An estimated 50,000 par-
ticipants knitted, sewed or
felted their contributions to
remember those that gave
the ultimate sacrifice, with
the poppy an international
symbol of great loss at war,
and hope for those left be-
5000 Poppies Project co-
ordinators sisters in law
Lynn Berry and Margaret
Knight, a Ventnor holiday
home owner, are delighted
the story of the 5000 Pop-
pies will continue to spread.
The RHS Chelsea Flower
Show attracts more than
150,000 visitors each year,
while many more tune in to
the BBC telecast.
The two ladies were
guests at a lunch at the
Vietnam Veterans Museum
in Newhaven in October,
where they spoke of the in-
credible interest this project
has generated over the past
three years in both Austra-
lia and overseas.
Their talk was accompa-
nied by a slide show featur-
ing stunning photos of the
displays as well.
This was a most success-
ful event and one that left a
lasting impression on many
of those who attended,
some of whom have made
a personal contribution to
“It was a wonderful oc-
casion, and the museum is
very proud and delighted to
have hosted Margaret and
Lynn,” said lunch organiser
and museum executive So-
While most of the audi-
ence were local, including
a group of ladies from the
Phillip Island Patchwork
Club, a bus load of women
travelled from Pakenham
for the day.
All present enjoyed a deli-
cious finger food lunch ca-
tered for by the museum’s
Nui Dat Café.
The occasion was also the
first port of call for Lynn
and Margaret as they set
off for a regional tour of
Gippsland with the display,
as part of a Regional Arts
Victoria festival being held
The 5000 Poppies proj-
ect began as a simple and
heart-felt desire by Margaret
and Lynn for the creation of
a symbolic tribute to their
fathers, both of whom had
served in World War Two.
In a short space of time,
this idea spread and is now
being embraced by commu-
nities across the world.
Its impact can be seen in
the staggering numbers of
hand crafted red poppies
that have been created and
contributed to this project.
Initially the two ladies set
out to knit and crochet 120
poppies to mark Remem-
brance Day in 2013.
Following news of their
have personally received
257,000 poppies from knit-
ters keen to assist with the
project; and there are over
500,000 that have been dis-
played in other centres.
It has appealed to all
members of the community
and to all age groups.
“The youngest contribu-
tor we have had is a little
girl of two years and the old-
est is a 106 year old lady,”
said Lynn Berry.
“It is such a fabulous
community outpouring and
in many ways is a commu-
nity tribute of respect and
remembrance for those
who served,” she said.
“I still get very emotional
when I read the personal
messages and tributes hand
written by family members
to their loved ones,” Lynn
“This has been a totally
for both of us.”
Former Victorian Premier
Ted Baillieu, Chairman of
the ANZAC Centenary Com-
mittee, described the 5000
Poppies project as: “the
single most important com-
munity art project ever”.
As Margaret and Lynn
recover from the organi-
sation of this year’s pop-
py display in Federation
Square on ANZAC Day,
they are now gearing up for
the next exciting stage of
their remarkable journey,
as exhibitors at next year’s
Chelsea Flower Show to be
held in London in May.
The design of their dis-
play at Chelsea is in the
hands of noted Australian
landscape artist Phillip
Johnson, who was the win-
ner of the 2013 Chelsea
Flower Show, and who de-
signed the stunning display
in Melbourne on ANZAC
Along with this invitation
comes a request from Lynn
“We need another 20,000
poppies, on stems, to take
“The only stipulation
is that they are small and
tightly knitted,” said Lynn.
Anyone interested in be-
ing a part of this project
can find more information
on the 5000 Poppies blog.
REMEMBRANCE Day this year fea-
tured the launch of the ANZAC Centena-
ry Bookmarks Project by West Gippsland
Regional Library Corporation.
The project is funded by the ANZAC
Centenary Grants Program and will in-
volve the creation of a set of 12 book-
marks, featuring photographs of soldiers
or participants of WWI that lived in the
three Shires - Baw Baw, Bass Coast and
The first bookmark is now available in
all West Gippsland Regional Library Cor-
poration libraries. It features an image of
a Phillip Island soldier, Walter George
Richardson, who left his homeland to
take up the call to arms in 1915.
The bookmarks project was adver-
tised in April 2015 but organisers have
not yet received enough usable images
to complete the set of bookmarks. “We
know there are more images out there.
Gippsland sent many soldiers to war
and was also prime land for the reset-
tlements,” said CR. Bob Newton, South
Gippsland Shire. “We are hoping that
once the bookmarks are released that
we will have more photos submitted so
we can complete the project as planned,”
Libraries across the region will have
Remembrance Day displays with recom-
mended items from the collection.
The Phillip Island Library’s display
features a variety of material available on
loan on this subject which caters for all
age and interest levels.
It is on display, near the entrance to
the library, for a limited time only. The
community is invited to call in and have
a look or take home any of the items of
interest to them.
Library membership also offers access
to a number of great historical resources
including: Ancestry.com, findmypast.
com, The British Newspaper Archive,
WikiTree, Picture Australia and TROVE
(National Library archives).
If you are interested in submitting a
photo for the bookmarks project, please
go to www.wgrlc.vic.gov.au and follow the
links to WWI Bookmarks.
Private Walter George Richardson’s
great niece Julie Box of Cowes holds
a bookmark featuring his photograph
and record of his World War One ser-
vice. This bookmark is the first in an
ANZAC Centenary Bookmarks Project
series recently launched by the West
Gippsland Regional Library Corpora-
tion. This bookmark is available free
of charge at the Phillip Island Library.
