Remembrance Wreath

There has been a steady increase in the numbers of people who join the service at the Trumpington War Memorial on Remembrance Sunday.

Sadly, there will be even more reason this year to remember the people we have lost through war and conflict.

In 2018 the Trumpington Stitchers made a wreath to lay at the memorial, and we have continued to take part ever since, renewing the wreath where necessary over the years.

This year, we decided that we should make a new wreath, and invite other people to contribute a
handmade poppy. They do not all need to be the traditional red, but could be white or feature national colour schemes. We can supply patterns for knitting or crochet, and your poppy should be no more than 6 cm. in diameter. We already have the leaves to go with them.

If there is a story to go with your poppy, we will be happy to feature it on our website.

Updated Wreath

Trumpington will be marking Remembrance Sunday as usual this weekend. There will be a procession from the church to the Memorial on the High Street timed to arrive for the reading of the names beforehand at 10.50 and the two minutes silence at 11.00am. All welcome as usual.
The Stitchers’ wreath is a group effort this year, reflecting present wars and casualties as well as remembering the world wars of the 20th century.

Many thanks to those who have sent us their contributions to the Stitchers’ new remembrance wreath for the war memorial.

A record number of people of all ages gathered to mark Remembrance Sunday and to lay wreaths.
