Leigh Poppy Trail 

To mark 2021's centenary of the Royal British Legion, the Leigh Branch collaborated with us at Leigh-on-Sea Town Council to put on a wonderful Poppy themed Art Trail around Leigh-on-Sea during Remembrance Tide 2021.

With the help of local artist Kerry Doyland, we came up with the idea of producing a trail of poppies throughout Leigh to help mark the special occasion. Local artists, groups, schools and residents are all invited to take part and to paint or decorate a poppy in any way they see fit.

We originally hoped to have 100 poppies in the trail to celebrate the 100 years of the Royal British Legion, but by August had already smashed this target and were overwhelmed by how many people wanted to be involved in the project.
