Knit a Poppy Project


2018 marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War 1 and Pembury is planning its own event to commemorate this, on Sunday 11 November 2018.  If you can knit or crochet, we would love you to help us decorate our village!

The poppies can be any size and follow any pattern.  There are lots of patterns available on the internet including the Royal British Legion website. There is also a simple pattern on the Royal British Legion website.

The completed poppies can be dropped in the collecting boxes at:

  • Nanna’s Cafe opposite the Village Green
  • Community Coffee Shop, Recreation Ground (Monday mornings 9:30am to 12pm)
  • Or contact Val Coombes tel: 822105

Thank you!
