TO HONOUR
ALL SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN
AND
TO COMMEMORATE THE 100th ANNIVERSARY OF THE END OF WW1

The Northney Textiles Craft Group and St Peter’s Church Northney, Hayling Island, Hampshire, PO11 0RT, with the help of so many people on Hayling Island, surrounding areas and other countries, are making a POPPY CASCADE to be displayed in October and November 2018 in the churchyard of St Peter’s Church, to honour all service men and women and to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

Handmade poppies will be attached to camouflage netting to make the cascade.

We have nearly 16,000 poppies.

No more please!

 

Label for Albert Henry Bastiani

Commemorative Labels

We will also be displaying with the poppies some labels to commemorate some of the Fallen.

We need more commemorative labels please. Honour your grandfather, uncle, father, brother, mother, sister, aunt -or anyone who has died in a war or conflict, or who died because of it. You do not have to know the person(s) you are honouring.

You can sew the name onto fabric. If you use fabric, please let us have it with no raw edges. Or, using waterproof ink, you can write the person's name on a ribbon or fabric.

We will sew all the labels onto fabric so that they can be displayed with the poppies. See here for some we have received so far

Completed labels can be:

Dedication Service

The Dedication Service for the Poppy Cascade will be on Sunday 7 October 2018 at 10.30 am at St Peter’s Church.

Beyond 2018

Beyond 2018 it is intended that the Poppy Cascade will continue to be used, potentially in a wide range of settings on Hayling Island, so that The Fallen are honoured with this tribute year after year.
