Yesterday, more volunteers met at the JE Homewood yard to finish sanding the new flagpole for St Christopher’s Church. The project team have asked me to thank all the volunteers. They have updates on Twitter here.
Here are some of the volunteers who helped yesterday.
With this part of the project now put to bed, we look forward to the pinning of the poppies on to the netting, which is somewhat a bigger task. This will take place in the warmth and dry of inside St Christopher’s Church. Although most of the 12,000 poppies have been made, we are still waiting for the delivery of the netting upon which they will be pinned, so I believe the team will not be starting with this until early February.
However, hopefully you will find time to join us when we start this.
