A group of Embleton residents are preparing to celebrate Remembrance Day by decorating their village in homemade poppies.

This will be a new project for Embleton, coordinated by Vivien Wilson and Janet Murphy, and has seen people come together to work on something special for their community.

The group started their preparations early and have been very busy making poppies of all shapes and sizes to decorate and enhance the village with many of the villagers either knitting or crocheting their poppies.

They work individually on the poppies at home but meet up every week at the Parish Rooms, which also doubles up as Mandells Coffee Pot, to put the display together. The group have produced two silhouettes of soldiers which will be displayed at the entrance to the village’s church.

A donating page was set up by Janet for The Royal British Legion. If you would like to donate, visit the JustGiving page.
