A unique display of poppies has been placed in the centre of Market Weighton to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. The cascade of poppies is located next to the Giant Bradley statue to remember the Fallen of the town.

Market Weighton Town Council came up with the design which contains 73 large poppies – representing those who lost their lives serving in the two World Wars from the parish of Market Weighton and Arras.
