Caithness poppy displays in honour of the fallen


By David G Scott


THRUMSTER, Lybster and Dunbeath churches have benefited from local remembrance projects.

Caithness Community Connections (CCC) and Lybster and Tannach floral classes created striking poppy displays for Remembrance Day.

Children and young people from Thrumster and Lybster youth clubs and Local Crofters Crafts, run by CCC, designed and created a poppy cascade which can be seen flowing down from the side of the church towards the ground.

Twenty-two poppies were also placed in the ground at Thrumster War Memorial commemorating the names on it.

All three churches are displaying floral creations inside – designed by ongoing floral classes in Thrumster and Lybster run by Jane Sutherland of Wick Flower Shop.

Linda Bremner from the Lybster and Tannach Fund said: "It's great to see additional value for the wider community from the funding groups and individuals have received from wind farm community benefit. Caithness Beatrice Fund, Camster Community Fund and Lybster and Tannach Fund helped fund these activities."
