Almost 10,000 knitted and crocheted poppies decorate the inside and outside of St Mary’s Church in Walsham-le-Willows (Suffolk) in an act of remembrance of those who gave their lives during the First and Second World Wars. Come along and take a look.
Tea/coffee and cake will be served in the church from 10 o’clock until 4 o’clock.
Take a look at a slide-show of images from this year’s display and watch a video commemoration for soldiers who fell.
Jan and Fiona would like to thank the many ladies who are knitting/crocheting for the poppy project.
They will both be in the Coffee Shop on Thursday 29th June and Thursday 24th August to collect any poppies, and to give an update on progress.
