Wall of Poppies Project - The Vision becomes Reality

Thanks to the hard work of many, our 'Wall of Poppies Project' is taking shape.

This project, launched by Tattenhall's WI, has captured the imagination of the community, and for that we thank you.

Our plan is to create a cascade of poppies to commemorate the Centenary Anniversary of the Armistice (the end of The Great War 1914-1918) — 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.

Well we might not have the mighty Tower of London as our natural backcloth but you can all see that the WI vision is becoming a reality.

Click on each image to enlarge — not only can you begin to visualise the final outcome but you can also see members of the WI at work.

Keep those poppies coming in please.

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 about as large as an adult 'fist'.

They also each require a tail of thread or wool at the back for attachment to our creative installation.

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