Knitted Poppies Displays at The Parish Church of St John the Baptist, Church Lane, Pinner

Over 70 Parishioners and Friends of The Parish Church of St John the Baptist have been have been knitting poppies in Remembrance of those from Pinner who lost their lives during World War I.

The initial aim was to knit 148  poppies to represent one poppy for every Pinner person who did not return.  The 148 poppies were completed within the first two weeks of the project so the volunteers kept on knitting.   

With over 2,500 completed poppies there will be three displays seen from Friday 2nd November.   The display around the font will be to represent the 148 Pinner men, while the outside displays will be at the Lych Gate and the West Door.   

We will remember them.
