In the lead up to Remembrance Day an amazing poppy display has been put together in Marlow.

Over 5,000 hand-knitted poppies have been attached to the railing on the All Saint Church and Higginson Park.

Marlow Poppies, a group of local women, have been working hard to get all the poppies ready for the display.

If you walk along the display you will notice a number of purple poppies are in amongst the red, these are remembering the animals who also lost their lives.

The remembrance group are also leaving 300 crocheted poppies, each bearing the name of a local hero from either WW1, WW2 or Afghanistan.

The group said on Facebook: "This has been a real community project with lots of local ladies involved and we have been very touched by your many heartwarming comments.

"We started just over two years ago as we were coming to the end of the year in which we celebrated 100 years since the end of WW1.

"I felt it was important to remember and recognise each serviceman from Marlow and the surrounding area who lost their life.

"Each of these 300 poppies will be dedicated to a local serviceman or servicewoman who lost their life protecting our future.

"If you find one, please wear it in honour of them, and if you are able to, please make a donation."

"It has meant so much that many of you have researched the person your Poppy was dedicated to and I have loved that children have been involved with this too.

A JustGiving page has been launched as the group looking to raise £7,000 for the Marlow Royal British Legion.

Over three-quarters has currently been donated with a total of £5,375 currently raised at the time of writing.

A post on the page reads: "Please will you join us as a community to honour our local heroes and help raise funds for the Marlow British Legion Poppy Appeal.

"Thank you, we really appreciate your support."

One donator, Emma, said: "I found one of the poppies on the High Street and am wearing it with pride. A wonderful idea."

A message from the Hallett family read: "The poppies look amazing! Great effort by everyone who has made them and put them up."

Last year the group raised £4,896 overcoming their £3,000 target comfortably, as they look to do again this year.
