Thanks for making all the poppies
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.
