To Mark the season of remembrance in 2018 we will have a poppy cascade from the Church Tower.    Later this page will have details of how and when you can see the cascade will be erected . 

IN the meantime we need as many people as possible to make poppies 

 Here you will  find some patterns to knit and crochet  poppies for our poppy cascade .

There are more patterns available in our downloads section for you to download and print off here

If you would prefer to make tissue paper poppies you can get instructions for making some beautiful poppies from WickiHow   http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Tissue-Paper-Poppies and print them off.
