Visit to the Poppy Project

Theresa May MP visits the Poppy Project

On Saturday 10 November Theresa visited the Holy Trinity Church in Cookham to view their display to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

The church was decorated with hundreds of poppies knitted by women from the village, perspex soldiers were placed in the pews and there was also a display of shells, crutches and a stretcher used during the conflict 100 years ago.


"Everyone had gone to a great deal of effort to create this poignant memorial. 

It was a very effective and moving way of remembering all those who lost their lives for us."
