Com­mu­nity spirit

The Arran Banner - - News -

Sir, On be­half of my knit­ting friends, I would like to ex­press our heart­felt thanks to ev­ery­one who con­trib­uted to the cas­cade of pop­pies on Brod­ick Hall wall.

Ev­ery­one’s gen­eros­ity in giv­ing their time and ef­fort to cre­at­ing the pop­pies, en­sured that it was a stun­ning dis­play and we have re­ceived a great deal of mes­sages from lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike ex­press­ing their ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the trib­ute com­mem­o­rat­ing the 100th an­niver­sary of the end of First World War.

I have also re­ceived dona­tions of over £250 for Poppy Scot­land, from peo­ple who ad­mired the dis­play which is a very re­spectable to­tal, so thanks very much to all who con­trib­uted. Many thanks also to the li­brary staff who col­lected the pop­pies for us and to Ian and John for putting up and tak­ing down the dis­play.

Fi­nally, it once more demon­strates that the com­mu­nity spirit in Ar­ran is strong and peo­ple can be counted on to rally round, so many thanks to all.

Yours, Jess­may Pea­cock, Whit­ing Bay.
