Handmade poppies to go on display
Poppies created at workshops run by The Crafty Foxes group, in Bury St Edmunds, are to go on display in the town’s Abbey Gardens.
The workshops have been run by Michelle Freeman with groups around the town including primary and middle schools, the West Suffolk College, a scout group and Gatehouse the Dementia Hub.
There will be a field of poppies where the World War 1 bicycle by Trudi Edmunds is on display in the gardens and each poppy has been named so all that participated can see their poppy in the field of flowers.
They have been made from waterproof recycled materials.
Hawksmoor Investment Management sponsored the project and their investment manager, Max Weatherby, joined the workshop at Gatehouse to make poppies from recycled carrier bags. Pictures of the poppies will also be on bollards on the Anglia in Bloom and Britain in Bloom judging routes.
