Poppy Places

Have you ever thought about the many streets, buildings, trees, memorials and monuments in our district and wondered, what are these name after or why are they there? In the Hastings District many are in remembrance of those people who died and served in world wars. For example Russell Street is named after Napier-born, Sir Andrew Russell, who commanded New Zealand soldiers in World War 1 in England, Gallipoli, France and Belgium.

Poppy Places is a national project inviting members of the community to tell us what you know about these streets, buildings, trees, memorials and monuments so that we can start to paint a clearer picture. A poppy will then be attached to signage for quicker recognition.
