11th June 2018Poppies Wave at Fort Nelson, near PortsmouthThis sweeping arch and weeping window of iconic bright red poppy heads were part of the display at the Tower of London, 2014 to commemorate WW1. Fort Nelson is one of the venues lucky enough to host this touring display.

With a huge fort to explore, amazing artillery pieces to discover and scenic views to enjoy, there’s always something different to see and do at Fort Nelson. We plan to run a half day coach trip while the poppy display is on. We intend this to be a three hour visit, enabling time for a cold lunch in the cafe (at own expense), leaving at 2.30 pm

Cost £13.00 Booking opens 6th March by phone 9.00am till noon and continues at the general meeting. Closes end April. Contact Alice Green - Poppies Wave Website
