An installation of knitted and crocheted poppies that have been made by volunteers, now cascades from the beacon in the grounds of the church.

Posting images of the spectacular creation on Chatteris Cambs Discussion Facebook Page Tina Prior said: “Massive thanks to everyone who made poppies- there are far too many to name. Very, very special thanks to the ladies who spent about 25 hours attaching and stitching the poppies: Jane Tibbitts, Jan Stewart, Kay Spurr, Michelle Roberts, Gloria Prior, Jill Shepherd, Tina Prior and Primrose Durdant-Hollanby.”

Poppies are available to sponsor, or donations can be made - all for the 2016 Poppy Appeal- at in to The Old Bakery at 3 Market Hill.
