Thanks to volunteers for poppy cascade

We are thanking all of the volunteers from Chesterfield and around the world who have donated knitted and crocheted poppies for the poppy cascade at the Town Hall.

We issued an appeal earlier in the year for 15,000 of the knitted and crocheted poppies and were overwhelmed with the response, receiving more than 47,000 of them.

Around 16,000 were used on the display with the others used on the balcony of the Market Hall and also in shops and businesses ini the town centre - which will be the route of the parade from St Mary and All Saints' Church, the Crooked Spire, to the war memorial opposite the Town Hall on Remembrance Sunday.
