A church created a stream of poppies to commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day.

The Rev Tina Kelsey, vicar of St Peters Church, in Bounces Road, Edmonton, said the parish wanted to remember the soldiers who sacrificed all during the First World War.

Churchgoer Coleen Lambert suggested at a church coffee morning that they could cut the bottoms of plastic bottles away and paint them to look like poppies, with buttons acting as the centre of the flower. The Rev Kelsey also wanted 143 knitted or crochet poppies to be places on a cross within the Church.

Each poppy represents a soldier who lived in the area and was killed during the war.

All members contributed, collecting plastic bottles, buttons and knitted poppies. Mrs Kelsey and Ms Lambert cut the plastic bottles into the shape of poppies and

group member Monica Lieth sprayed the poppies, placed the black buttons in the middle and added the stalks.

These were then assembled as if they were pouring out of the window in a display similar to the one at the Tower of London in 2014.

The church will hold a Remembrance service on Sunday between 9.45am and 11.30am. There will then be a wartime tea and exhibition at 3pm.
