From today until 12 November, 192 addresses in Thame will display a poppy, or poppies, in their front window. Properties with a poppy signify that a serviceman lived there before going to war. Each poppy lists their name, regiment, address and whether they survived or lost their life during WW1 – a white centre signifies they returned home, where as black centre means they did not. You can read more about this project here. Streets where you can find a poppy are: Bridge Terrace, Buttermarket, Chinnor Road, Church Road, Cornmarket, East Street, High Street, Kings Road, Nelson Street, North Street, Park Street, Park Terrace, Queens Road, Southern Road, Thame Park Road, Upper High Street and Wellington Street – click here to view a map of the streets involved. Poppies have also been displayed on the Town Hall windows and in the Information Centre.
