The Nations love of Poppies Grows

The Nations love of Poppies Grows

t was lovely to meet so many people at Armed Forces Day in Cleethorpes on Saturday.

Sassy Spirit was right on the sea front and we had a fantastic view of all the days activities. The Red Arrows were amazing and I confess to feeling a huge surge of patriotic pride as we watched them cross the sky streaming plumes of red, white and blue.

We took along our growing selection of beautiful Poppy accessories and were pleased with the lovely feedback we received. There was no doubt that fans of the baskets were wide and varied as you can see below. I confess to chuckling every time I see the picture of Darth Vadar standing so solemnly with his Madaraff basket.

Your love of our new Equilibrium Poppy Jewellery was also delightful to see and I was pleased so many of you liked the new friendship bracelet with its adjustable fastening.

I hope you will all delight in our selection of poppy accessories. If you are looking to see them in the flesh please pop along to our Facebook page to stay up to date with where we will be. For those of you venturing to Lincoln to see the Poppy Wave at Lincoln Castle please check out the Craft and Gift Fairs at the Assembly Rooms on Bailgate where we regularly attend.

I hope to see you all again soon.
