A HELENSBURGH church will commemorate Remembrance Day with a huge display of poppies created by people in the town.

Around 2,000 poppies – knitted and crocheted - will form the installation at Helensburgh Parish Church in Colquhoun Square.

Members and friends of the congregation have been hard at work over the last few months making the poppies which will be on display inside the church from the beginning of the month.

The poppies are part of the congregation’s way of marking the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. During the Remembrance Day service on November 11, war memorials will be rededicated and the names of those connected with the congregation who died during the 1914-18 conflict will be read out.

Minister the Rev David T Young said: “We have been overwhelmed by the number of people all over the town and beyond who have contributed poppies.

"We hope our display will be a fitting tribute to those who gave their lives in the service of their country.”

Anyone who still has poppies for the display is asked to hand them in to the church office as soon as possible.

The Remembrance Day service at Helensburgh Parish Church begins at 11.30am following the gathering at the war memorial in Hermitage Park.
