Norfolk Poppy Project

The Norfolk and Norwich Millienium Library has launched a craft project to mark the centenary of the 1918 Armistice, and remember the 15500+ people who died in the Great War and are listed on Norfolk’s war memorials.  Between now and September, they would like the people of Norfolk to help to make a poppy for each person so that they can be displayed together in October in Norwich then split into smaller displays in the county’s libraries for 11 November.  

South Lynn’s war memorial commemorates 169 people. Barbara Blacklock has already completed 49 poppies. If you would like to join in the project please contact her joba35@gmail.com. There are many patterns and instructions on the internet, and she herself has copies of patterns and instructions etc. They are simple and quick to make and can be made from any material,  i.e. card, felt, crochet or knitted and no bigger than 4”x4” (10cm x 10cm).  www.norfolkinworldwar1.org/commemorating-the-fallen-of-norfolk
