Local Scouts and Guides are to help with a colourful and meaningful initiative for Remembrance in West Moors.
Muriel Moore, who is church secretary of St Martins United Reformed Church in the town, has garnered the support of local people to knit and crochet poppies.
She said: “A couple of years ago I saw a news item on the television about a village in the New Forest which had decided to decorate the area with poppies and I thought ‘we could do that’. So I contacted various people I know and now we have hundreds of poppies. They are red for Remembrance, mauve for remembering animals and white for peace.”
However, Muriel realised she would need some help with attaching them to the Petwyn, hence contacting the Guides and Scouts.
She is hoping the poppies will be put in place on the last week of October or the beginning of November.
