The event, organised by Sefton Council was away of remembering all those affected by World War One, which broke out 100 years ago this month.

49 schools and nurseries across sefton took part part in creating the largest human poppy in the world. Despite the rain the event ran like clockwork. Below are some photo’s from the event.
