24th February Purple Poppy Day 2024


Join us on Purple Poppy Day at 11am on Saturday 24 February 2024 for a memorial service to honour and remember our war animals.
Throughout history, in war and in peacetime, animals and mankind have worked alongside each other. As beasts of burden, messengers, protectors, mascots, and friends, the war animals have demonstrated true valour and an enduring partnership with humans. The bond is unbreakable, their sacrifice great – we honour the animals of war and remember them, we have dedicated 24 February as Purple Poppy Day.
