Remembrance Poppy Project, Waterbeach/Landbeach, 2021/2
Do you knit or crochet? Do you know anyone else who likes to?
Would you like to make a few Remembrance Poppies which will add to a display outside St John’s Parish Church later this year? We need them by the end of May because to create the big installation panels will take us until November!
Even a few 3”/75cm knitted or crotched poppies will help us to complete Phase 2 of the project. There are patterns here [for red yarn, please] or you can research your own. Add some string or thread at the back so that we can tie them onto netting.
Our War Memorials at Waterbeach and Landbeach missed out on Centenary commemorations due to the Covid-Pandemic. Here is our chance to help put that right and to support the Royal British Legion.
Put finished poppies into a plastic bag with a note of your name and some contact details for Track and Trace, following all Guidelines. Your work can be handed in at St John’s Church, Waterbeach, or All Saints, Landbeach – or you can contact Angela or Jane to arrange drop-off or pick up.
Anyone with links to HM Forces, or NATO forces nearby are especially welcome.
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has helped so far. You have launched this project! If we get further poppies by the end of May we may be able to extend onto further panels.
