In commemoration of the centenary of the end of the First World War, our Red Hat Knitters supported by friends and family, have been knitting and sewing poppies to decorate the front of the museum. Over 700 poppies were made – our youngest contributors are primary school children and our oldest in their nineties. To each we extend our thanks.
Today, 1st November 2018, we fixed the poppies in place. They have been arranged to create a cascade of flowers 15 metres wide falling over the front of the museum. A fitting tribute from a former military battery and a crowning glory for the museum.
