July 2018 - Volunteers wanted!

We have undertaken to make a label for all those on the war memorials in St Peter's and St Mary's churches. There are a lot of names.

If you would like to volunteer to make one or several, please contact us and we will give you the names, rank, date of death, etc.

You can make the labels in any design you choose. As you can see from our Commemorative Labels page, we have a good variety. The labels can be as simple or as elaborate as you like.


June 2018 - We have over 16,000 poppies. No more please!

Please don't make any more poppies, but if you still have some you have not given us, please hand them in as soon as possible as it will take a long time to attach them to the netting.

We had an attaching session at Mengeham Rythe Sailing Club on 11 July. We finished 2 panels of 3m x 3m netting. A big thank you to all who helped at this.

At the Poppython at Mengham Rythe Sailing Club on 10 May we finished our first panel of netting.
