Malpas Times — NEWS FROM THE FRONT

Don't forget to book your tickets to a performance of "The Armed Man" by Nantwich Choral Society in St Oswald's Church, Malpas at 7 pm on 9th November 2018

Festival of Poppies for "Malpas 100 Years On"
A spectacular Festival of poppies will adorn St Oswald's Church in Malpas when the village remembers the First World War this November. Visitors over the weekend and those attending "The Armed Man" performance by Nantwich Choral Society on Friday 9th November, will be able to share with the Church's congregation the splendid and respectful commemoration of 1918

'Malpas 100 Years On" committee member and Chair of Malpas Flower Club, Janet Blake, is delighted with the huge response to an appeal to knit a range of poppy heads to be used for the memorial showcase.

"We want to thank everyone who has knit poppies for us," says Janet, "their amazing response means there will be around a thousand poppies in designs to commemorate the armed forces and volunteers as well as featuring the role of animals during the First World War."

Nifty fingers for delicate wiring by members of Malpas Flower Club continues to progress the detailed work required to fulfil floral displays planned for the entrance and interior of St Oswald's. The work is part of preparations for the three-day commemoration event taking place in the village on 9th, 10th and 11th November to mark the 100th Anniversary of The Armistice.
