A MAGNIFICENT poppy dress has been created by knitters in Thornbury.

Karen Woodman, owner of Castle Crafts, asked the community to knit poppies in aid of the Royal British legion.

After a wonderful response to her appeal, a poppy dress was created.

The dress is now on display at the shop on The Plain.

You can have a go at guessing the number of poppies used to make the dress for the chance to win a prize made by one of the shop’s crafters.

There is also a window display showcasing the rest of the community-created poppies.
