After our success with the Christmas tree at St Mary’s we have been asked to contribute to their display to celebrate 100 years since the ending of the First World War. They are wanting to create a poppy cascade, similar to the one at the Tower of London. They have asked if we could make poppies – knitted, crocheted or any other craft based poppy.
Several of our members were busy making poppies for the St Mary’s church appeal.
The walk started from The Dormouse Tea Room at Daresbury on a glorious day and the sun shone for the whole walk.
We headed south from Daresbury and found a small geocache ( for the uninitiated see Dave Roberts) We walked to Preston on the Hill village and down to the Bridgewater canal and followed the canal passed the Science Park and collapsed at the Dormouse for a light lunch.
