Poppy deadline approaching
The deadline is looming to donate knitted poppies for a spectacular Armistice Day commemoration.
The people of Inveraray plan to create a striking display of poppies, thousands of them, to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice.
The Glenaray and Inveraray Parish Church pulpit will be draped with poppies and, depending on how many poppies are donated, the rest of the inside of the church will be decorated along with the railings outside the building.
Church officer Wilma Wood this week announced more than 1,500 poppies had been created – but gave notice the door is about to close on donations.
Wilma said: ‘The dates for the poppies to be returned is the last weekend in September. They can be handed in to Wilma or Aline or anyone who can pick them up.’
She added: ‘Send a message on Facebook to one of us if poppies need to be collected.’
