A net of more than 2,000 poppies has been erected in Littlebury to mark this weekend’s Remembrance Day and the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The poppies fall from half way up the tower of Holy Trinity Church and are visible from the road.

Many people helped to make the poppies and to secure the net and it will go some way to commemorating those who died in wars, especially in the First World War.

There is also an exhibition inside the church focusing on those who lost their lives in Littlebury and its surrounding villages.

Teas and cakes will be offered to visitors on the last three Sundays in November from 2-4pm.
