Big Yellow gets ready to commemorate 100 years of Remembrance

In August this year, Britain will mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War. Nearly 1.1million lives were lost in service and each year Britain comes together to remember the sacrifices that were made.

To mark the anniversary, Big Yellow has teamed up with The Hounslow Chamber of Commerce and Wild About Roofs to create the 100 Poppy Roof. The symbol of the poppy is used to commemorate Remembrance Day and it is because of this that the team has chosen to plant these seeds in memory. You can see the guys below working hard on the 100 Poppy Roof earlier this month.

The poppies will take roughly seven months to grow and will be in full bloom on November 11th, ready to remember those sacrificed at war.
