For the third year in a row, residents of Hobsonville Point participated in the installation of roughly 1800 Peace Poppies in commemoration of ANZAC day. 

Come rain and shine - Hobsonville Point Early Learning Centre, residents from the Waterford Retirement Village and other community members showed up at Hobsonville Point Park to help install a vivid red square for all to enjoy.

The Peace Poppy Project began in 2013 and is the brainchild of West Auckland artist Cristina Beth. It seeks to remember and honour those who have served. Over the past three years, Hobsonville Point residents and students at Hobsonville Point’s two schools made the poppies installed this year.

If you live in or near Hobsonville Point, come along to help with the deinstallation on 27 April between 10 am and 10.30 am and take a peace poppy home as a symbol of peace and a reminder of those who served.
