Big Yellow unveils the 100 Poppy Roof

Yesterday we unveiled the 100 Poppy Roof in association with Wild About Roofs and the Hounslow Chamber of Commerce to mark the 100 year anniversary of World War One.

After just four months, the 100 Poppy Roof began to bloom and was ready to be unveiled to the public. The event attracted 113 visitors from 45 different local businesses despite the rain! There were also some very special visitors including the Mayor of Hounslow, Karina Smart, Annabelle Miles the MP of Chiswick and Brentford and Lord Sardar Sigh, the President of Hounslow Chamber of Commerce.

The night kicked off with a speech from Mayor Karina Smart before attendants were taken up to the roof to see the 100 Poppy Roof.

We’ll continue to maintain the 100 Poppy Roof, which you can see below, in memory of those who fought in the war and remember the lives that were lost on the 11th November this year.
