Tattenhall remembers

Tattenhall WI are looking forward to mounting a display of poppies in the Barbour Institute as part of the Centenary Anniversary of the Armistice in November 2018.

The plan is to create a cascade of poppies — you may all remember the installation entitled 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' at The Tower of London in 2014, followed by the display at St George's Hall in Liverpool in 2015.


So — a huge plea to everyone in the village!


Wouldn't it be terrific if every family, or (a big ask) every resident in the village were to make a poppy for the event — inclusivity at its very best.

For maximum effect and impact, we ask that all poppies are red with a black centre BUT they can be made in different mediums: suggested ones could be knitted, crocheted, those made of material or card and in different sizes — our preference is that each poppy is as large as an adult 'fist'. They also each require a tail of thread or wool at the back for attachment (yes, we have a plan).

They can be delivered to any WI member or to our President, Sue Gamble at 14 Barnfield, off Covert Rise, 01829 772659

Sue has patterns for knitting or crocheting that can be sent by email or collected from her.

It would be lovely if all the organisations in Tattenhall took part so spread the word!
