This Sunday November 11 marks 100 years since the end of World War One. In this exceptional centenary year, we're contributing to local commemorations happening in Saltash to remember those who served, sacrificed and changed our world during the First World War.
The finished carpet will be laid, with others, in the garden of St Nicholas and St Faith Church and will be an important and stunning part of Saltash Remembers: The Great War 1914-1918 commemorations that will be taking place throughout the town.
China Fleet Club members and visitors have already added hundreds of poppies with one completed 'carpet' full and a second one now in its place. We'd really appreciate everyone to take a moment to add a poppy to the hessian carpet which can be found in the China Fleet Country Club main health club reception.
A spokesperson for the Great War Committee said: "Saltash people wanted to pay tribute to all those that went to war for peace and freedom.
"The Great War Committee has been very honoured to organise events and projects involving many organisations and individuals of all ages and abilities who have tirelessly volunteered their services in so many ways.
"War is a terrible thing and those that fought for us in such hostile conditions and environment will not be forgotten and our tribute is just a small way of saying thank you, and that we will remember and honour them."
Please add your poppy to our collection and help the local commemorations.
See you next week & see you at the Club soon,
