Remembrance Day: Knitting Club crafts a tribute

Once again, the Knitting Club has stood up for Remembrance in Geddington village.

Last year, we were celebrating the Royal British Legion’s 100th anniversary by erecting a poppy arch over the entrance to the churchyard, plus poppy hangings in the church: we also wrapped a length of crochet and knitted poppies around the War Memorial in the churchyard. This year, the club has done a similar, but slightly different display. The arch has a different colour in its look, but still remains impressive, despite surviving a couple of months in last November and December’s weather.

Do visit the church, it’s open during the week as well as the usual Sunday times, the hangings are obvious and splendid and can be seen in the images below.

One new item is the wreath displayed in front of the Jubilee Celebration stone on the village green. As can be seen, it says In Memoriam, so, is it for Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II or for the fallen from two world wars and other conflicts? It’s a decision only you can make.

A display open to all residents and visitors
