Poppies woven through town

Evesham Editorial 7th Aug, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

POIGNANT reminders of the lives lost in the First World War have been scattered throughout Evesham to remember those who lost their lives.

A team of knitters and crocheters have spent the past year making woollen poppies to commemorate 100 years since the UK’s involvement in the Great War.

Each of these poppies was invested with feelings of love and appreciation of sacrifices made in combat.

And to remember the sacrifices made 100 years ago, the poppies can be dedicated to individuals.

Some have already been dedicated and others can be found in Market Square, the High Street and on Bridge Street.

Anyone who wishes to remember someone special is invited to find a poppy with a label and add a name in the next two weeks before the poppies disappear.

A number of poppies have sprung up in Market Square. (s)

A knitted and cross-stitched wreath also adorns Evesham’s War Memorial. (s)
