To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the outbreak of World War One, we have hand crafted a number of limited edition SureSet poppies – for every poppy sample requested we will donate £1 to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

On 11th November 1919, the first anniversary of Armistice Day, King George V declared this day ‘Remembrance Day’ and dedicated it to people whose lives had been lost during the War. Since then, at 11am on 11th November every year, millions of people observe a two minute silence at to remember people affected by all conflicts.

The First World War veterans who founded the Royal British Legion in 1921 chose the poppy as a symbol of Remembrance and their Poppy Appeal, in aid of those serving in the British Armed Forces.

In August we were delighted to be able install a replacement Remembrance poppy in the Memorial Garden for the Royal British Legion in Steyning, West Sussex.

Our amazing Installation Team created a 3m² poppy using colours chosen from our in-house coloured recycled glass range Spectrum® in Traffic Red, Traffic Black and Emerald Green.

Chairman of the Steyning and District Branch of the Legion, Lewis Whittaker contacted us afterwards to say:

The War Memorial Garden was totally reconfigured in 2011 and the design included a poppy mosaic fashioned on the Royal British Legion emblem. Sadly this became discoloured and in August 2014 it was replaced by SureSet with their own UV resistant coloured glass range. We selected the colours from their online selection.

The SureSet team were very efficient and obviously knew exactly what they were doing – this was not a straight forward ‘pathway’ type of project and quite a fair amount of free thinking had to be applied.

I have since received many complimentary comments about the new poppy, so thank you to the SureSet team!”

Please request your poppy before 11th November 2014.
