In the century since the start of World War One, poppies have become synonymous with the loss of life on the battlefields of Northern Europe.

Bishop Tom Butler, the Acting Bishop of Bradford, took the opportunity to sow seeds at St Stephen’s, West Bowling, as a mark of remembrance.

He waspresented with a knitted poppy badge made by a group of Gurkhas who attend St Stephen’s knitting group.

There were a series of poppy sowing events at locations across West Yorkshire.
