Calling all Poppy makers

Calling all poppy makers…

Caroline Dear, stone carver, will be leading poppy workshops at Choice Plants, Timsbury, again this year. We hope that those who came last year will be able to attend and that we may also meet new people.

This time we aim to make ceramic poppy-shaped candle holders, holding battery-operated small candles. These will be placed around the Poppy Memorial at Romsey Station Approach in a short ceremony on Remembrance Saturday, 9 November 2019 (time to be determined). Main workshops will be on: Friday 5 July, 5.30 – 7.30pm; Saturday 6 July, 10am – midday; and Wednesday 10 July, 5.30 – 7.30pm.

Address: Choice Plants, Stockbridge Road SO51 0NB. There will also be drop-in workshops, again at Choice Plants, on: Monday 8 July, 10am – midday and 2 – 4pm; Tuesday 9 July, 10 am – midday and Thursday 11 July 10am – midday.

Entrance fee £10 – no need to book. This allows a maximum of four items. Please contact Shirley Rogers, Romsey Station Volunteer, if you have any queries. or tel: 01794 513040
