Bury in Bloom commissioned The Crafty Foxes to run workshops to create poppies from recycled items which were run by Michelle Freeman.
Various groups around the town took part including primary and middle schools, the West Suffolk College, a scout group and Gatehouse the Dementia Hub.
And now the poppies created will on display in the Abbey Gardens in front of the mosaic from today, Thursday, July 12.
They will create a field of poppies where the World War 1 bicycle by Trudi Edmunds is also on display. Each poppy has been named so all that participated can see their poppy in the field of flowers.
The poppies have been made from many different waterproof recycled materials including plastic bags, tin cans and fabric.
Hawksmoor Investment Management have sponsored the project and Max Weatherby Hawksmoor’s Senior Investment Manager joined in the workshop at Gatehouse to make poppies from recycled carrier bags.
Hawksmoor have an office in Bury St Edmunds as well as offices in London, Exeter, Dorchester and Taunton.
Pictures of the poppies will also be used on a number of bollards around the town on the Anglia in Bloom and Britain in Bloom judging routes
