Nailsworth Remembrance Lighting

Nailsworth Remembrance LightingWe've recently helped Nailsworth's residents to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War. The town’s clocktower and a nearby tree have been draped with poppies voluntarily knitted by the town’s residents.

Local Firefighters took on the intricate task of putting up the poppies on Sunday, to the gratitude of Bob Warner and Jane Luff of the Daisy Jane clothing shop. Chinnicks then lit the clocktower and trees with a lovely shade of red.

The idea for a knitted poppy display came last year from Tony Evans, the town crier for Nailsworth, and his wife Jenny.

They enlisted the help of Margaret Marshall, who runs Nailsworth Knitters, a small group that meets monthly. 
They put a call out on the Facebook group Nailsworth Chat & Information in about April 2017 and the response was overwhelming.
Members of the public were able to use a template pattern to help make the poppies, which are mostly made of red wool and black buttons, but knitters have also provided green woollen leaves. 
This year's display uses some of the poppies from last year's.
They had been stored by the fire service.
