Residents of Bridestowe have been busy working on a
special way to honour the centenary of the signing of the Armistice, marking the
end of World War One and to say “Thank you” to the local people who were
involved in The Great War.
Beginning at Easter people around the village have been busy knitting and crocheting poppies, with over 1400 in total! The idea has captured the imagination and generated a wonderful community spirit, with help from many organisations within the village and sponsorship from people unable to knit or crochet.
The fruits of their labour has culminated in a beautiful “wave” flowing down from the tower of St. Bridget’s Church and other displays around the village with still more to come as we approach 11th November.
