Fareham getting crafty for Remembrance Sunday

Fareham craft centre, the Crafty Makery, is working with community members and groups to make up to 1,000 ceramic poppies for Remembrance Sunday on 14 November 2021.

The completed poppies will be displayed firstly at Westbury Manor Museum from 11-12 November and then moved to the grounds of the Holy Trinity Church on West Street, Fareham on the 13 November. Once the Remembrance Sunday ceremony has concluded, the poppies will be sold for a suggested contribution of £5 each, to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.

The Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Pamela Bryant and Mayoress, Cllr Mrs Clubley, attended the Crafty Makery, in Fareham Shopping centre, yesterday (3 November) to show their support, talk with community members involved and to make poppies of their own. 

Cllr Mrs Bryant said: “It is so nice to see the Fareham community come together to help support this most worthwhile cause. Fareham has a rich military history and buying poppies, or making ones yourself, is an ideal way to pay your respects to those who have lost their lives in wars and conflicts. I encourage residents to come along to the Craft Makery to create their own poppy and help to thank the servicemen and women who served our nation so bravely this Remembrance Sunday.”

Shane Davies at the Crafty Makery added: “The whole team at the Crafty Makery is proud to offer our support to the Royal British Legion. By offering people the opportunity to make a poppy, we can not only create a beautiful display at the Trinity Church to show our respect for our servicemen and women but bring people together through arts and crafts. We welcome anyone who would like to create their own poppy or take part in the wide range of crafts we have to offer.”
