Salisbury City Council and commissioned artist Michele Millidge, are running a community project to create an installation of poppies made by members of the community to be displayed in the Guildhall over Remembrance Weekend in November.
We will be running several workshops across the summer at our events to make “bottle poppies” however we are also looking for knitter and crocheters to get involved too.
How can you help?
You can take part in our workshops across the summer or we are asking all knitters and crocheters to donate a poppy to the project.
You can download a pattern from the Royal British Legion website or simply download one of our patterns below.
When do we need the poppies?
All poppies can be handed into Information Centre in Fish Row, Salisbury Shopmobility or the Bemerton Heath Centre.
Deadline for handing in your poppies is: 27 October 2017.
Volunteers are also required to help install the poppies on Saturday 28th October 2017 in Salisbury Guildhall anytime from 10am—4:00pm.
For more information and to volunteer for the 28 October please contact the Council’s Community Development Team on 01722 417100
