Knitted poppies now decorate Penge War Memorial


Volunteers put up the display on Sunday

Penge War Memorial is now lined with its own permanent poppies after a tremendous effort from volunteers.

Together the Penge Partners community group managed to knit 375 poppies, which have been attached to rails surrounding the First and Second World War Memorial on the High Street.

On Sunday the group, of which mayor of Bromley Kathy Bance is a member, gathered to attach the knitted and crocheted poppies as an act of remembrance.

Plaques baring the names of Second World War dead were raised around the railings that surround the stone cross which acts as a First World War memorial, following a campaign in 2014.

Maureen Kennedy, from the committee, said: “We hope the poppies will last for a number of years and that our residents will want to help keep beautiful poppies around these plaques.”
