A huge display of over 20,000 knitted poppies has been unveiled at Bangor Cathedral, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice and remembers the men and women from Wales who died in World War I.
The project was launched in May this year and volunteers began knitting and crocheting the poppies for the display, the cathedral even had its own dedicated Facebook page to coordinate the project and the poppies soon began arriving, not just locally but from across the UK and even from France.
The poppy display was unveiled at the RAF Centenary service held at the Cathedral on Saturday, 8th September, and will remain on display until Remembrance Sunday, 11th November. When the display is dismantled the poppies will be sold for £1 each in aid of various armed forces charities, which will include The Royal British Legion.
Members of the public are invited to visit the cathedral to see the display at any time during the usual opening hours
Monday – Thursday 10:30am – 4:30pm
Friday – Saturday 10:30am – 1:00pm
Sunday – Open for services
