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.
