Thousands of knitted poppies decorate historic building for project
This year marks the centenary of the end of the First World War.
And to commemorate the significant event, Thetford Town Council has unveiled the first phase of its special poppy display for Remembrance.
The front of the historic Guildhall has been adorned with 3,000 hand knitted and crocheted poppies.
The poppies have been sent in my people across Norfolk and Suffolk - with many knitting hundreds - and created by knitting groups. Women from two Sikh community centres in Kent also made poppies.
Originally the council had hoped to collect 5,000 poppies, however they already have more than 4,000.
It is hoped the two towers on the Guildhall, trees in the market place and the building known as The Shambles, will also be decorated with the poppies.
A knitting group will be held at the Guildhall every Tuesday in September between 11am and 1pm.
