Poppies - Image HBOWaterside Poppy Makers make over 3500 knitted and crocheted poppies to create a stunning displayy of remembrance in Hythe on 9 November

In February this year, following an article in a women’s magazine appealing for craftspeople to knit or crochet poppies for wreaths to be laid on War Memorials a group of Waterside women got together and Waterside Poppy Makers was born.


In a fairly short space of time 130 poppies were created and sent to the Woman’s Weekly/British Legion appeal, just as they were finishing the project one member saw an article about a group in Folkestone who decorated a road with knitted poppies as an act of Remembrance.

Waterside Poppy Makers had enjoyed the community side of the project so much they decided to see if a similar project could happen in Hythe. With support from Hythe and Dibden Parish Council giving permission to attach the poppies to the railings at Prospect Green in Hythe the Poppy Makers started making poppies in earnest, the original target of 250 was very soon smashed and a new goal set. Throughout the summer the Poppy Makers have knitted and crocheted, sometimes alone, sometimes in groups and even teaching people who have never knitted or crocheted before so that they could make a poppy, all the wool was donated by local people. The goal has been reset several times during the summer and autumn but the final total by next week will be a staggering 3500 plus handmade poppies ready to be attached to the railing on Sunday 9th November. As a personal act of Remembrance each poppy maker has given a single poppy which has been created into a wreath to be laid at the Commemorative stone on Prospect Green during the service.

There will be collectors for the Royal British Legion at Prospect Green on Sunday 9th and for £1 a poppy can be dedicated and the poppy will be yours afterwards. The display will be dismantled on Sunday 16th November and the poppies can be purchased for 50p either at Prospect Green during dismantling or at Faith Hope & Charity in St John’s St afterwards.

The purpose of our visit was to look at autumn colour as the trees began to shed their leaves. It is however easier to see colours in the mind than in the field and even harder to take a photograph that truly represents an ideal.
