Poppies made of lego, wool, cake, oil paintings, photographed and even grown are expected to fill a village parish hall for a weekend display to celebrate 100 years since the end of World War One.
Wimblington Parish Council have organised a poppy gathering to bring the community together to commemorate the centenary of the end of the Great War.
Thomas Eaton school children will kick start the event by bringing 100 individually-made poppies to display in the hall.
An event orgnaiser said: “Several local village groups have engaged members and friends and are also making poppies, so we hope to have a great display built up for the weekend.”
The display will run from Friday November 2 to Sunday 4.
