Local WI members instigated the project and other village organisations came on board.

A service of remembrance was held on the village green to mark Armistice Day on Thursday, led by children from Longhorsley St Helen’s First School.

Poppy tributes to those who gave their lives in battle have also sprung up in Longhoughton, Powburn, Wooler, Lowick and Spittal with many more communities planning to hold remembrance services on Sunday.
