The Parish Council has today launched a special ‘Community Poppy Trail’ of 100 poppies in commemoration of the First World War centenary.
Villagers and businesses within the parish are invited to place one of the poppies on the front of their home or building between 24 October and 30 November 2014.
The hand crafted metal poppies have been made and donated by the Council’s Property Manager, Paul Kemnitz.
Poppies are available from the Parish Office for a minimum donation of £25. All of your donation will go to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
In order to obtain a poppy you must be resident within the Parish and only one poppy will be available per household. They will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
You may wish to dedicate your poppy to the memory of someone who served in one of the armed forces during any conflict, or on behalf of someone currently serving. The list of names to whom these have been dedicated will be available on the Parish Council’s website until 30th November.
The Parish Council will be publishing the trail in early November and this will be available from the Parish Office and via the Council’s website.
