Gravesham Borough Council is asking people to join in with its 2018 knitted poppy project.

The project is aiming to build an even bigger carpet of knitted or crocheted poppies this year. Picture: Gravesham Borough CouncilThe project is aiming to build an even bigger carpet of knitted or crocheted poppies this year. Picture: Gravesham Borough Council

The project, which has been a huge success in Gravesham over the last two years, is aiming to build an even bigger carpet of knitted or crocheted poppies this year.

The poppies will feature in the window of a number of shops in the town centre.

Over the last two years, thousands of poppies have been created by residents, community groups, schools, and churches.

The success of the Gravesham knitted poppy project has led to the project becoming Kent-wide.

Cllr David Turner, leader of the council, said: “This is such a lovely idea and one which we hope people will get involved in.

“Even if you can only make one poppy it will help add to our wonderful carpet of poppies.

The poppies can be any size and you can follow any pattern.

Poppies can be placed in the special poppy point in the council’s reception in Windmill Street at any time between now and mid-October.
