Warkworth Oaks is putting on an Anzac display upstairs at the Warkworth Hotel again this year. There will also be vehicles and World War II jeep rides for children from outside the hotel on the day.
The event is free, but donations will be collected for the RSA.
In another event, fibre and paper artists are encouraged to help create a cascading poppy display at the Warkworth Library.
Whether you’re a dab hand with a pair of scissors or an old hand at fibre graffiti now may be the time to help make an Anzac Day splash.
The poppies can be made from paper, crocheted or knitted, with red poppies representing the military, purple for the animals and white poppies representing all victims of wars, military and civilian, and of all nationalities.
