We stitched hundreds of knitted, stitched, crocheted red poppies onto a three-metre banner which will be part of several WW100 exhibitions and commemorative events over the next year.
Hundreds of people all over the country have been making poppies for this project, it felt great to be part of that big group working together to honour our history and make sure we learn from it. Find out more here:
Among the many laughs on this happy day, also some poignant moments as we read the individual commemorations that accompanied some flowers.
They shall grow not old as we who are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning...
...we shall remember them.
