Hereford’s Poppy Man
Hereford is very proud of this gentleman.
Mr Poppy Man is a hand-crafted metal sculpture covered in poppies and spends his days sat on one of the city council’s First World War benches. Mr Poppy Man was designed by Hereford in Bloom stalwart, Angela Pendleton, and created by George Thomas, a metal worker of Upper Hill with a grant from Hereford City Council.
The sculpture has also attended the unveiling of a forces memorial garden in South Hereford back in June the result of a partnership between Hereford Veterans Support Group and Saxon Hall, the gardens honour those in Herefordshire who have served or are still serving in the armed forces.
