Thousands of handmade poppies have been put on the fences near Higginson Park and All Saints Church to remember fallen soldiers who died during World War II.

Organised by Marlow Poppies, well over 3,000 crotched flowers have been made and are currently on display.

Additionally, many other poppies have been left on the town’s High Street, with members of the public needing to try and find them.

Once they have been found, there will be a note dedicating that poppy to a fallen soldier from Marlow, revealing which war they died in.

The person who then found their poppy in the town is then encouraged to donate to the Just Giving page.

There is no fixed amount on what can be donated.

This is in aid of the town’s Royal British Legion Branch, with the aim being to raise £3,000 for the charity.

Two weeks ago, only £205 was raised, but now, the total is up to £2,317.

On the Marlow Poppies Facebook page, they published a statement on October 31 that said: “I would like to say a huge thank you to all the ladies who have knitted and crocheted poppies this year and for the wonderful spirit this morning [October 31] attaching them to the park railings despite the weather (including the men who came to help).

“Yesterday [October 30] poppies went up on the church railings.

"Together, these displays are a tribute to all who have given their life for our freedom, and to celebrate 75 years since the end of WW2.

“We are facing more restrictions this coming month but let’s take time to remember those who endured so much more!

“I will continue to place poppies along Marlow High Street dedicated to those who died during WW2, up until November 7, so if you are out for a walk, please keep an eye out.

“I really appreciate all the support of those who have already donated.

“You will be supporting the Marlow Branch of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

“Thank you.”
