Last chance to see poppies at The Hive

The Hive Published Wednesday, 21st November 2018

There's only a few days left to see The Hive's commemorative knitted poppies display.

Just under 8,500 knitted and crocheted poppies made their way to The Hive following an appeal to the public to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.

Some arrived from as far away as New Zealand. All the poppies received were then draped over the balconies at The Hive as part of a weeping wall special display.

They will be on display until Saturday, November 24 and then stored away by The Hive for future displays to mark Remembrance Day.

Laura Worsfold, Business Development Manager at The Hive, said: "We are extremely grateful for everyone who spent time knitting or crocheting one of these wonderful poppies.

"We think the display looks great and is a real tribute to those who lost their lives in World War One. We were also touched by the messages that accompanied many of the poppies sent into us. Don't miss out on seeing our weeping wall and paying your own personal tribute."

The poppies represent the servicemen, women and animals who gave their lives for our freedom.
