I was one of the volunteers who did a shift in the moat planting poppies. It was an amazing experience to take part in this beautiful tribute to our fallen. My husband was in the army so remembering our fallen has always been part of our lives. But planting the poppies really brought it home to me. Holding a poppy in my hand I realised that it represented a life and I have to say it was a very moving experience. My husband bought the poppy for me and then found the display frame for it. It means a lot to me and has pride of place in my home. Big thanks to everyone you gave me a day I will never forget
