Knitted poppies remember the fallen in Payhembury

A mural of knitted poppies has been tastefully draped over a wall next to the war memorial in Payhembury.

The poignant tribute, in the shadow of the parish church, has been respectfully placed in memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for peace. It pays tribute to the price paid by those from the village.

A fitting symbol of remembrance, the carpet of poppies has been much admired by passers-by and those who have stopped to pay their respects.

Tomorrow, communities across East Devon will remember the fallen during remembrance events.

On Remembrance Sunday, Honiton will stage its annual parade and service. The event will take place at 2.15pm.

On Monday, November 11, the traditional Remembrance Day silence will be observed across the district at 11am.

Our photos of the knitted poppies at Payhembury have been taken and supplied by Honiton and Village News, the FREE monthly magazine for Honiton and surrounding villages.
