Winscombe and Sandford high streets will don red flags for the third year running as part of a Remembrance Day display.
The flags will be hung for a month with plans to take them down in early December.
Due to the Government’s announcement of a second lockdown to combat coronavirus cases, the flags wiill be up for longer than usual.
The efforts are a joint venture by more than 50 businesses and a dedicated team which supplies the flag poles.
Team member, James Barattini said: “The flags are intended to remind passers-by of this the Armistice and to perhaps donte by way of the poppy collection boxes that are located throughout the villages and organised by the local Royal British Legion.”

James added: “With the full support of the parish council and businesses, it has been made possible to remember the fallen and their families.”
