Poppies at Silkstone Common

In the past few weeks the ladies of the Silkstone Common Sharing Skills group have manufactured nearly 1000 felt poppies. The display, mounted on chicken wire, is displayed as a waterfall flowing from the church porch into the garden. Our minister, Rev Kristin Markay led a short service of dedication on 25th October and the display will remain in place until after Remembrance Sunday
