Can you knit?

knitted poppies

We are looking for knitters who would like to make poppies to be part of a display in the phone box museum for Remembrance Day. You are welcome to use either of the patterns below, or use your own.

Completed poppies should be sent to 28 St Edyths Road, Bristol BS9 2ES and we will be delighted to include them in our display. We have at least one champion knitter in Sea Mills, so let’s hope we can find some more!

Remembrance Day Gathering

Sunday 10th November

Gather from 10.50am at the Sea Mills 100 museum (the old phone box), under Addison’s Oak, Sea Mills Square BS9 2DY

The Last Post will be played followed by 2 minutes silence at 11am.

Everyone is welcome. After the silence and some brief words of remembrance anyone who wishes to is invited to say a few words to remember someone affected by war. 

You could remember a friend, relative, loved one or someone you have discovered while researching during the Sea Mills 100 project.
We will remember those who survived as well as those who died. 

You are also invited to bring photographs and / or a written memory.
If you wish we will collect these to display in the phone box museum for the duration of November. These should be around postcard size and not your only copy of a photograph if you wish to leave them in the museum.

The event will be weather dependent and duration will depend on the number of people who wish to speak.
