Thousands of poppies created by local school children and the community will go on display in Tiverton’s Pannier Market this month . The project marks 100 years since the end of the First World War and will be on show until 17 November. Market traders contacted schools around the town asking pupils to paint their own poppies, while members of the public were also requested to either knit or make poppies. A book of remembrance has also been opened. The first entry was written by Marilyn Hall, who wished to commemorate her two uncles, whom she never knew. One of them died aged 15, having lied about his age to join the army.
