The residents of Gunnislake have knitted and crotcheted over 2000 poppies to hang on the front of the village hall to remember those who gave their lives in conflict. The display is to be blessed by Chris, the local vicar next weekend (12.00 on 4 Nov), and on the weekend of 17 November an evening of remembrance that focuses on WW1 will be held in the Village Hall. A specific separate commemoration to the 92 local residents who lost their lives is also featured on the Hall railings.
 
The above photo is of the trio of ladies responsible for coordinating the poppy tribute that commemorates the end of the first war 100 years ago. Obviously it couldn’t of been done without the help and support of many others. Shown are  Carol Mcallister-green, Katy Choroszewska and Jean Day at Gunnislake Village Hall.
 
On the evening of the 17 November an event is going to be held in the Village Hall called Gunnislake Remembers. This will be a Commemorative evening of poetry, readings and songs from the time of the First World War.
