Volunteers prepare for the poppy planting next to the Fox Inn in Holgate back in April

First published in News

A DEDICATION ceremony will be staged tomorrow for York’s Poppy Road Poppy Project, which has created a remembrance meadow for the fallen of the First World War.

A band and a piper will play at the ceremony, which will take place at 3pm on land just off Holgate and Poppleton Road, where volunteers braved the rain to plant poppy seeds in April.

The names and ages of the 72 Holgate soldiers who died in the war will also be read out.
