10 Feb 2022 The Royal British Legion Poppy Factory Exhibition and Museum

The Poppy Factory in Richmond is a charity set up by the Royal British Legion over 100 years ago. Its aim is to support wounded veterans with health issues to find employment. It reaches beyond the factory into communities across England and Wales. We will visit the factory and learn more from their newly opened exhibition and museum.

We meet at the Poppy Factory at 10.30am and, after an introductory talk, visit the exhibition where coffee and cakes will be available. We’ll learn about the origin of the poppy symbol and have the chance to make our own poppy. The morning ends at 12.30pm. Date: Thursday, 10 February 2022 Location: The Poppy Factory, 20 Petersham Road, Richmond TW10 6UR

How to get there: Take bus 65 from Kingston to Richmond and get off at Compass Hill, opposite the Poppy Factory (last stop before Richmond Bridge – ring the bell). Unfortunately there is no parking available for visitors’ cars. Cost: £18.65 per person
