A spokesperson from the project said: “Thirty-four people attended and it was very successful and most interesting.

“We even tried our hand at making a poppy to take home.

“There was a fascinating talk and film, and most of us had no idea how very many people are helped into long-term employment by the Poppy Factory - their work goes way beyond making the poppies that we all buy each November.”
