There are 3 patterns which are available from Cotgrave Library, All Saints Church and the Post Office. Other outlets for patterns will open as the year develops. Exactly how the Poppies will be displayed is yet to be decided but what is needed now is for you all to start knitting, spread the word and recruit others knitters
