    Fewston Church is hoping to make a 'Poppy Cascade' in time for the 9th and 11th November 2018.

    We need lots of volunteers to either knit or crochet the poppies.

    Please bring them along to Fewston Church where there will be a box on the back pew labelled 'Poppies' and a notebook where you can leave your name and phone number or email address and the number of poppies you have donated (so that we can have some idea of the netting we shall have to buy!

    If you are a bit hesitant and want some help in making them, we are holding an afternoon of tuition at the Heritage Centre on the afternoon of 16th August.

    Patterns will be provided if needed and some knitting needles and crochet hooks.

    In the meantime if you see any poppy - red wool it would be great if you could beg/purchase it. I think there will be a run on it this autumn.

    Assistance will probably be needed to fix the poppies to the netting.

    You might like to note in your diary that there will be a Commemoration

    in words and music of the 1918 Amnesty and this will be on 9th November, in Fewston Church.

    More details later.
