MORE than 500 woollen poppies have been knitted or crocheted, to help mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Villagers in Marloes and St Brides, along with holidaymakers and those from further afield, have lent a hand to create the flowers, which will be part of a larger display this November.

Organisers are aiming to create 2,000 poppies in total, to mark the occasion, and remember the 11 locals who never returned home after the war.

A pattern for both is available at Marloes Village Stores, and all contributions will be gratefully received.

Advice will be available at the Beach Cafe on Tuesday mornings from 10.30am.

If knitting/crochet is not your skill you are welcome to make a donation to the costs of the project.

Any surplus will be donated to the Royal British Legion.

Completed poppies can be returned to Marloes shop, or contact Yvonne Evans on 01646 636251.
