We would like to thank the many volunteers that helped us to build the Centenary Poppy. They included serving soldiers, archaeology undergraduates and their lecturers, many people, of all ages, from Fovant and surrounding villages and from other charities.

The Centenary Project though continues. In August we will continue with the geophysical survey of Fovant WW1 Camp and with field walking where we can, bearing in mind the area is a working farm.

We are also considering holding a Centenary Poppy Volunteers Maintenance Day Picnic in July.

More details will be available soon, however we would love to see you back again in 2017!

Perhaps those interested would be kind enough to email us at fovantbadges1@outlook.com or complete the form below to register your interest.
