The Church Family got together in late October to use old plastic bottle bases and tops to make striking red poppies. Paper crosses were also made. Luggage labels were inscribed with the names of all those from Gnosall lost in two world wars as well as a few made remembering relatives of those within the church now.

We held a short commemoration at the end of our work transferring the cross, paper poppies and labels into our church. Thus Remembrance was linked into services held and then two weeks later the cross was processed from the church to outside so reminding everyone of the sacrifices made from a small community in service of our country and commemorating 100 years since the end of World War 1.
