Poppy Factory Visit

Buying a poppy in November will not be the same having been to the Poppy Factory and seen the people at work. It was fascinating to see the wreaths being made, from simple to royal and we watched one man making piles of WI wreaths. One lady was making the royal poppies from red silk with black broom centres. Ian, a retired sub-mariner, told us about the history and the work of the charity. He was a mine of information and a very amusing raconteur. It was a really interesting afternoon
