Cramlington prepares for Remembrance…
November 2, 2022
The giant poppies that adorn the lampposts in Cramlington’s during the run-up to Remembrance Sunday have become something of a tradition over the last few years and we are pleased to report that our Operations Team have been out and about this week fixing hundreds of them along the main roads.
Elsewhere in the town the wonderful women at Knit and Knatter have produced bags of poppies that will be used by the Town Council and Manor Walks in their Remembrance Displays.
Janet West and Kirsty Kelly from the Cramlington Branch of the Royal British Legion are seen with their display in the Community Hub. It includes an illuminated sheep, a camouflage net adorned with poppies and a lit poppy tree, seen with Cramlington Town Mayor Loraine De Simone.
The displays have been created thanks to help from the Healthwise ladies group, the Townswomen’s Guild, the Salvation Army and members of the Royal Britsh Legion.
A ‘Tommy’ figure has also been placed in Manor Walks looking over the RBL poppy sellers.
Cramlington’s Remembrance Sunday service will be held in St Nicholas’s Church on Sunday November 13th followed by a ceremony at the War Memorial which includes a two-minute silence at 11am.
