“It must have taken ages to complete and we are so very grateful.

“Additionally, the staff ran a series of workshops and over 100 poppies were made. Our thanks, not only to Augustus House, but also to Warwickshire Community Aid And Voluntary Action) - for coordinating the link to Augustus House.”

Thousands of handmade poppies will be on display in St Mary’s Church in Warwick from October 5 to mid-December.
