To help us remember the fallen and your own loved ones, we are creating a big, knitted poppy display in East Leake in November 2023.

The ‘Knit & Knatter’ group who meet at the Parish Office every Tuesday morning have been hard at work for a while now and we currently have over 300 knitted poppies… but there is still a way to go to make this display truly spectacular!

Therefore, we need you to help us make as many red poppies as we can; at home, with friends, or as part of a community group, and bring them into the Parish Office where we will keep them safe.

Below are some patterns for you to work to and, all we ask is that the poppies are made in a shade of red and either knitted or crocheted.
