Thanks for mak­ing all the pop­pies

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Letters And Opinion -

A big thank-you is be­ing sent out to knit­ters across the dis­trict who have been busy sup­port­ing the area’s Knit­ted Poppy Ap­peal.

Pop­pies of all shapes, sizes and colours have been mak­ing their way to col­lec­tion points – in­clud­ing con­tri­bu­tions from in­di­vid­u­als, and lo­cal groups, like the Ayle­sham Knit and Nat­ter group.

The ap­peal was launched in Au­gust, when Dover Dis­trict Coun­cil with the Royal Bri­tish Legion in­vited ev­ery­one to get out their knit­ting nee­dles to cre­ate a car­pet of knit­ted or cro­cheted pop­pies.

The pop­pies will be used to cre­ate a dis­play in the run-up to Re­mem­brance Day (Saturday, Novem­ber 11) and Re­mem­brance Sun­day, Novem­ber 12.

The pop­pies can be any size or colour, al­though pat­terns are avail­able on the Royal Bri­tish Legion web­site.

Knit­ters are asked to hand in their pop­pies by Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 31, at: Dover Dis­trict Coun­cil of­fices in Whit­field, the Dover Gate­way of­fices in Dover town cen­tre, the coun­cil of­fices at the Ayle­sham Com­mu­nity Pro­ject, The Dover Big Lo­cal Hub in the Charl­ton Cen­tre in Dover, Deal Li­brary and the Sand­wich Guild­hall.
