Remembrance Day: Thousand attend Armistice commemoration in Joondalup’s Central Park

A WALL of poppies was part of this year’s Central Park Remembrance Day service attended by about 1000 people on Sunday.

Those in attendance placed poppies on a dedicated wall in the Joondalup park renamed Armistice Park for the ceremony marking 100 years since the end of World War I.
