We are really touched by just how many people are responding to our Poppy Plea, and how it is encouraging people to connect with the history of their local areas. Today’s update comes from King’s Lynn.
Barbara from All Saints Church in Hillington Square, King’s Lynn writes:
Members of the congregation of the Church I attend, All Saint’, Hillington Square, King’s Lynn (http://www.allsaintskingslynn.org.uk/) were impressed to hear about your Project.
We decided to produce a poppy for each life lost from our Parish, whose name is engraved on the memorial window in the Church, 169 in total.
Barbara and her fellow knitters have also said that this memorial to the fallen of their Parish will stay on display until the end of September and then they are very kindly going to send all 220 poppies into our bigger project to contribute to our countywide memorial.
Thanks to Barbara for sharing this story with us. If you would like to make a poppy or 2 for our project then you can find all of the details here and please do let us know of any of your own Armistice 100 projects.
