It’s been another glorious day in the shire. I’m loving the autumn beauty of my local landscape both the natural beauty and the community spirit found in the little village of Hartington.
Many residents of Hartington including the school and children have been making these poppies working together contributing to the community to make a stunning display to mark the centenary of the end of the great war 1914-1918.
Clusters of poppies cascade from the walls of St Giles Church on Hyde Lane and along walls and the telephone box. It is absolutely beautiful and a fitting tribute to many brave souls who lost their lives- we will remember them.
All donations go to support royal British Legion, Help for Heroes, Combat Stress, Soldiers Sailors Airman and Families Association, Cobseo and Coming Home.
I was also very impressed from an environmental angle how the use of plastic for the poppies had been up-cycled to create art and beauty rather than it be a single use plastic.
I would definitely recommend a visit to Hartington to view this stunning display and also the delights of this village many independent shops, tea shops, farm shop and cafe and of course the Hartington cheese shop and Charles Cotton Hotel and Devonshire Arms.
