    To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War One, individuals and groups are joining together to create a Cascade of Poppies.
    Local crafters are creating craft poppies which, when fixed to a mesh, will cascade down an exterior wall at Braunstone Civic Centre. The cascade will then flow out along the ground up to and around the Memorial Stone in the garden at the Centre on Kingsway, Braunstone Town. The community aim to make 14,177 poppies to commemorate each of the Leicestershire men who died as a result of the conflict.
    All types of craft poppies are needed (except card or paper – the display will be outside in November…) and we would welcome anyone to join us, whether you want to make one poppy, a dozen or more, and perhaps to tell us their stories of their relatives who lived during World War One. The group also wants anyone who wishes to donate red knitting wool, fabric or any camouflage type netting to please get in touch. Call 0116 2992192 or email: editor@braunstonelife.co.uk
