More than 1,000 poppies have been knitted as part of a Remembrance Day display near Weston.
Lympsham Women’s Institute put in the many hours to make the feat possible after member, Sue Smith came up with the plan.
The WI’s president, Angela York, praised the effort of one member, Isabel Wall, who knitted more than 300 poppies singlehandedly.
Angela labelled Isabel ‘a star knitter’.
The display splays across Lympsham’s Memorial Corner, at the junction of South and West Road – adding some much-needed colour as the town heads into a second lockdown, according to the group’s vice-president.
