New project calls for poppy makers
Ashford’s Gateway, in partnership with the Royal British Legion, is calling for people to get involved with their new project. The Poppy Project is part of this year’s Remembrance Day commemorations where it is planned for a wall of handmade poppies to be displayed in the Gateway building in Church Road. All those who can knit or crochet are being asked to make as many poppies as they can for the display, or even for people to donate any unused red or black wool. Completed poppies can be handed in at the Gateway, the Civic Centre, your nearest library or you can contact Gateway to arrange collection.
