344 poppies on display at St Giles’ Church West Bridgford

A beautiful display of poppies to mark Armistice Day has been installed at the church.

344 poppies have been made by members of the congregation.

This number was chosen because it represents the number of West Bridgford lives lost in World War I and World War II.

Everyone is very welcome to join a special service for Remembrance Sunday at St Giles’ on Sunday 13th November at 9am, featuring hymns, the Sounding of the Last Post and Reveille and the National Anthem.

Afterwards, tea and coffee will be served and then those who wish to can continue on to the War Memorial on Musters Road for a short Act of Remembrance starting at 10.50am.
