DARWEN Town Council deputy chairman Trevor Maxfield told colleagues at Tuesday’s meeting of the council that 10million poppy seeds had been bought.
The initiative was suggested by the Darwen branch of the Royal British Legion and funded by the council at a cost of £500.
Poppies will be planted throughout the town next year as part of the 100-year anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.
