A cascade of poppies

This year on Sunday 11th November we will mark the 100th year since the 1918 Armistice. In recognition of this important centenary, we are planning to make a public display of crafted poppies cascading from the church tower at St Robert’s.  The project is well under way with the Mothers’ Union knitting and crocheting hundreds of poppies and all who are interested are invited to join them.

You may wish to make a poppy in memory of someone special, or make dozens! 

Patterns are available from the church office for knitted or crocheted poppies. They can be made in any shade of red, with or without black centres or green leaves. If you prefer to craft them in another form e.g. felting or sewn these will also be welcomed. Any completed poppies can be left at St Robert’s marked for the attention of Revd. Abbie Palmer.
