Remembering the Great War in Framlingham

While visiting Framlingham shops and businesses, Dr Dan also enjoyed a visit to the town's church where he met with a number of volunteers preparing the church for its annual Remembrance Service on Sunday 11th November.

This year is extra special, with communities across Suffolk coming together to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War. Keen to mark the occasion, the community has come together, appealing for hand-made poppies, to create a stunning display which will cascade down the Church porch on remembrance Sunday.

Overwhelmed by the response, volunteers have now received in excess of 3000 hand-knitted and crocheted poppies, which are all being painstakingly sewn together to create the dramatic display. As well as the traditional red poppies, there are also a few striking purple poppies, which pay homage to the war horses and animals who also gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Just as with energy production, the Government are beginning to meet targets through interconnectors and looking at importing renewable energy, perhaps from Denmark and elsewhere. Part of the issue is that the Government are potentially...
