Anyone who would like to help mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War is welcome to get involved by sowing poppy seeds.
Barton’s Point Coastal Park, off Marine Parade, Sheerness, launched its Poppy Project last Thursday.
In partnership with Swale in Bloom and Swale council, volunteers will be creating flower beds along the road which leads into the park.
Seeds and tools are on hand for people to go along and get involved, planting their own section of the stretch.
A planting session will also be held in September to tie in with Promenade – the Island’s celebration of its heritage and history.
Mandy Shade, who runs the Boathouse Cafe at the site, said: “Hopefully it will look spectacular. I’m very much looking forward to them all being in bloom and they should self-seed and come back year after year.”
