Commemoration of the end of World War I : Remembrance Poppy Display 2018

To commemorate the end of World War I, the ceramicist Ceria Irwin is producing one thousand clay poppies which will be displayed by the east window of St Peter and St Paul’s Church. They will be ‘planted’ from the beginning of October so by Remembrance Sunday, 11th November, they will cascade from the east window.

Members of the community, the church, and others interested who would like to commemorate a member of their family, or a friend who died in the war, or indeed, to anyone who wishes to take part in the project.

The poppies attractively priced at £10 of which the Royal British Legion and Abington Church will each receive £2.50. Poppies will be available for collection after 11th November.

They can be ordered on-line from or from forms at the back of church

Celia Irwin began this commemoration to mark the start of World War 1 at Blisworth School where she was then Head-Teacher and the gallery of photographs can be seen here. This event commemorates the end of the war.
