Corop residents have been given the go-ahead to place poppy tiles on veterans’ graves.
Previously individual requests for any changes to be made to grave sites had to be approved by the Corop Cemetery Trust.
The trust saw the benefits in allowing the tiles to be placed on grave sites without formal permission.
‘‘It’s about remembrance and being thankful for what those people did to make this a great country to live in,’’ she said.
‘‘It’s a nice way to remember the men and women who sacrificed so much,’’ she said.
The Speers family had a reunion at Corop Cemetery on Sunday to place the poppy tile on the memorial plaque.
Ms Speers said it was a good for the family to get together and remember loved ones.
The tiles are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and cost $10 for a set of two tiles.
