Kimberley Park has been decorated with more than 3,000 woollen poppies ahead of Remembrance Day.

The idea came from Jenny Lake, who is a member of several knitting groups in Falmouth.

She suggested the idea to one of the groups who, through posters and word of mouth, managed to collect a huge number of the hand made flowers.

They were then covered in weatherproofing spray, courtesy of Trago Mills, and hung up around the park.

Jenny said: "We are very pleased with what we have done, we all think it looks very good. It was just so nice that so many people in the community took part."

Their plan is to leave the poppies up throughout November, and if they survive the weather they will be taken down and made into brooches to be given to The British Legion.

The knitting group meets at Falmouth Library on the second Friday of every month and Falmouth Art Gallery on the last Friday of the month at 10am.

Another group meets at Boslowick Inn every second Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm, and a third group gathers at Princess Pavilion every Wednesday at 10.30am.

New members are always welcome.
