Keen knitters, in and around Trowbridge, with the help of Trowbridge Town Council staff, have well and truly answered the call for the town’s 2019 Knitted Poppy appeal. Having first appeared around the town in November last year to help commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One thanks to an idea by former Town Council employee Emy-Louise Cox, so many poppies were knitted this year and, when added to those knitted in 2018, the Town Council have been able to decorate part of the outside of St. James’ Parish Church in time for this year’s Remembrance.
The Town Council would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to all who knitted poppies in 2018, and those who have participated this year . . .
