WARMINSTER town has been flooded by a sea of around 17,000 knitted red poppies which are being displayed for remembrance day.

The bright cascade of poppies which was made last year by volunteers in the town is once again being displayed on the front of the St Lawrence Chapel.

Around 11,000 poppies make up the spectacular cascade and the rest are used on the war memorial, with every name having their own poppy.

A memorial bench and wreath have also been made with the knitted poppies, and a new addition to the town this year is a giant poppy on the tower of the chapel.

Lesley Fudge, Warminster poppy appeal organiser said: "I got the idea for a cascade when I was working in London and I was inspired by the huge cascade on the tower of London.

"It's so important to remember those who have sacrificed their lives for us, and also to support those who are willing to and are currently serving in the armed forces.

"The poppy cascade and other displays are not just to make the town colourful, they make us remember."
