The beautiful poppy art installation and poppy cascade at St Lawrence church was created by the community of Towcester. Staff and students from Sponne School contributed towards the artwork and the individual poppies.

Students met on Wednesday lunchtimes to knit and sew individual poppies. These formed part of the external display and those within the church. The project was very successful and there was lots of support from the local community.

The overall display was extremely poignant to commemorate the Armistice of World War 1.
