Cullompton’s market place will be awash with poppies next month as the town marks Armistice Day with its very own act of Remembrance.
The people of the town are being invited to participate in a public art project which is a partnership between Cullompton Arts House, Fudge’s Wool and Haberdashery Shop, the Royal British Legion, Town Council and local Churches.
During the week starting 26th October you can pop into the shop to knit or crochet your own poppy and on the 27th October from 2:30pm to 4pm you can pop along and make a felt poppy.
There are also poppy packs that can be purchased for a donation to make your own poppy at home. Poppies made can either be donated to the display or worn personally.
Poppies created for the display will be turned into a public art installation on Remembrance Sunday and dedicated as part of the town’s civic service. Members of the public can then add to it during the days leading up to Armistice Day on 11th November.
The proceeds of the sale of poppies and materials to make them will be donated to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
