Poppy dead­line ap­proach­ing

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.’
