Lithgow Tidy Towns Laneways Project has decorated Gallery Lane in Main Street with handmade poppies and nurse and soldier silhouettes with the help of the Lithgow Men’s Shed.
The display will be on for two weeks leading up to the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day.
Secretary for Lithgow Tidy Towns Kathleen Compton said the concept was to recognise Remembrance Day, the battles and those who served.
“That’s what it’s about, the idea about giving the community acknowledgement of sacrifices of people and their contribution,” she said.
Ms Compton said the poppies used to decorate were created by volunteers.
“We use them in many different ways,” she said.
Among the laneway art is a list of soldiers’ and nurses’ names who served in the first world war.
Deputy chair of Tidy Towns George Quinell said there was 762 on the list.
“The list came from Ian Burrett of Portland, he put it together and that list in a different format is going up in Queen Elizabeth Park on Remembrance Day,” he said.
Ms Compton said Lithgow Tidy Towns hoped the laneway continued to be a showcase for events and art.
