Knitted poppy appeal

Do it online

Wednesday 8 May

Help create special tribute for Remembrance Day

Swale Borough Council is appealing for local knitters to help mark Remembrance Day.

The council is working with the Royal British Legion, Sheppey Matters and Sheppey Gateways, as well as local libraries and community groups, to create a garden of knitted and crocheted poppies at Sheppey Gateway.

The group is calling on the people of Swale to get their knitting needles out, get creative and make a poppy (or several) to contribute to the project. The poppies can be any size and knitters can follow any pattern.

Cllr Andrew Bowles, leader of the council, said:

"Last year’s appeal prove such a success, and the response from local people helped create an amazing display to mark Remembrance Day.

"People of all ages and backgrounds took the time to create a hundreds of poppies, and I hope this time even more people will get involved.

"Even by making just one poppy, you can help us create a unique tribute to the memory of the fallen."

Poppies can be donated until Friday, 26 October 2018, and can be dropped off at:
