Dramatic Action Poppy Project
Bolton store Community Champion Christine Baldwin volunteers with Dramatic Action to begin their Poppy Project. The group who meet monthly are creating a second large installation that will be on display at the town hall Lion monument on Remembrance Sunday. The poppies are made by using recycled plastic drinks bottles and tops, the bottles are painted red and the tops are painted black. When dry, the bottle tops are threaded through the bottles and a piece of twine is attached. The bottle is then heated with a heat gun to mould it into shape. Finished items are attached to a large fishing net. The installation created last year had 1,000 poppies upon it. Christine will be working with a variety of community and school groups, including Bolton St Catherine's academy, Bolton Lads and Girls Club and Scout groups across Bolton. Some of the groups will be making the poppies for the town hall installation, others are creating their own installation for their particular area, Good luck to Dramatic Action, who are finalists for a national award which will take place at the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool on September 8th for their work on this project.
