If left to history, the significance behind these place names may disappear from our collective consciousness.

Our aim is to provide a "place" where these stories can be captured and forever stored.

We encourage local communities to:

- Identify places which have a link to our military involvement in a conflict or operational service overseas.

- Place a permanent poppy on street names, buildings and memorials, marking them as a place of remembrance.

- Research and record the significance behind these places on the website

The purpose of the Trust is to reconnect New Zealanders with the significance behind places of remembrance.

Launch  16 December 2014

Posted by: New Zealand Poppy Places Trust

Poppy Places Trust was launched at Upper Hutt on Remembrance Day, 11 November 2014.

Signs for Gallipoli Rd, Messines Ave and a "much less understood" Oxford Crescent were unveiled by RSA vice-president Bob 'Bukit' Hill. Oxford Crescent was named after a type of military aircraft used in the training of NZ aircrews in WW2.

"I am especially pleased there are (Oxford Crescent) school children here today because everything we are doing is about children and their future lives" said Trust chariman Terry McBeth.
