Poppy Flower

Remembrance Day 2022

Over the past few weeks and months members of our community have dedicated their time creating the most spectacular displays for our community in commemoration of those who lost their lives during the war and those who continue to serve and give their lives so that we may live in peace. Just over one year ago, a small crafting/crocheting group was formed by Catherine Bailey, Karen Dee Holmes and Wendy Roddy, the then Manageress of the Willow Tree Pub on Rufford Way, called 'Stitch Up', it soon grew into a regular Tuesday evening event at The Willow Tree where it has continued to grow in popularity. They decided to commemorate Remembrance Sunday by creating a display along with Tracey & John Turrill, undertook a further display at the Notice Board  based on the corner of Rufford Way & Buckfast Way. 

In the following photographs, you can see one of those displays 

 

Please take time to enjoy the following photographs and appreciate all the hard work done to make our community a better place to live.
