A Poppy Trail has been installed from the Church to the War Memorial, running along the green, on various gates, lamp posts and down the lane past the Barbers shop.

Members of the WI, CRiB and other villagers have knitted and crocheted poppies, some have been made from plastic bottles and the school children painted wooden spoons; all in readiness for Remembrance Sunday.

Thanks to all those who have knitted and crocheted and made plastic poppies, also to Peter Hayes, Nicky Barker and Gina Beauchamp for putting them up.

There are 21 poppies on the central post at the War Memorial one for each resident of Curry Rivel who gave their lives in WW1.
There are some at the village entrances.
