Poppy Display

The Town Council is pleased to support the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and last year,  we invited you to create knitted poppies as part of a new display for the 2022 Remembrance commemorations.

Thank you to all who have contributed to this project, we had an overwhelming response and the poppies were proudly displayed on the River Bridge on Leighton Road. Following several enquiries and the appreciation expressed by residents, we hope to extend this project in 2023.

If you are interested in contributing Poppies please forward your details to info@leightonlinslade-tc.gov.uk. Poppies can be knitted or crocheted and we welcome a variety of different designs – lots of ideas here!

If you are part of a crafting group who would like to help us expand the display for 2023, please get in touch.
