Poppy parade to hit Manasfield

posted in: Oak Tree NMT | 0

This November Mansfield District Council will be putting on an impressive display of knitted and crocheted poppies to commemorate those who lost their lives during the war for Remembrance Day. The council is calling out for the local community to get involved by crocheting or knitting poppies to contribute to the display. Thousands of poppies will be needed to make a truly impressive feature for the town centre so knitting groups, schools and individuals are urged to make a start.

If you are interested in helping you can speak to the Events team on 01623 463376 or email events@mansfield.gov.uk for more information.
