Carrick DUP councillor Cheryl Johnston has proposed that Mid and East Antrim Council purchases poppy seeds to be planted across the borough.

Cllr. Johnston said that the aim is to raise awareness especially to younger generations and to “recognise the sacrifice made by our Armed Forces”

There will also be a donation included to the Veterans with Dogs assistance dogs programme - helping veterans with PTSD and mental health conditions.
