Remembrance Day 2020 – Poppies In The Park

Due to the current situation, public Remembrance events are not taking place, and it looks as if the new Lockdown regulations will also mean Churches cannot hold public services – except as on line events.

We therefore thought we would put up a poppy display in the Park. Our idea is to have a poppy blanket draped over the Farm Gate with the same look as these ones in Rawdon St Peter’s (see picture). It will not be as detailed as this, as there is not a lot of time to organize, but this is the rough idea

If you would like to make a poppy yourself and put it on the blanket it will be on the gate from Friday afternoon 6th November – just add it with a tie. There is a knitting pattern ; here – apparently they only take 20 min to make – if you can knit that it.

We were also thinking about how to use this to raise funds for the British Legion Poppy Appeal 2020. And may leave a donation box by the gate.
