Poppy Display 2021

Knitted and crocheted poppy display 2021

Thanks to the hard work of several volunteers who took up the challenge of knitting or crocheting poppies for a Remembrance Day Poppy Display, the poppies are now adorning the Powburn Community Garden. May Wilson and Noreen Birnie have made a wonderful vista of the colourful poppies and put it on show today. And it looks marvellous!
