Stockport Express - - What’s On -

RES­I­DENTS, staff and friends of a re­tire­ment home in Heaton Chapel have knit­ted pop­pies to make a dis­play to mark Re­mem­brance Day.

The cre­ation, dec­o­rat­ing Adling­ton House on Nel­strop Road, in­cludes more than 100 pop­pies to re­mem­ber those who have fought and died in wars, both now and through­out his­tory. Joanne Jones, hous­ing with care man­ager at Adling­ton House, said: “Vis­i­tors to Adling­ton House have been highly im­pressed by the dis­play, most of them tak­ing pho­to­graphs and send­ing them all over the world.”
