Lockdown Stories: Denny Poppies

Our collection of lockdown stories capture Falkirk's heritage in the making, by exploring the extraordinary times we live in today.

The people of Denny were unable to hold their annual remembrance service due to lockdown restrictions. However, members of the community  got together to create some wonderful ceramic, painted, knitted, and crocheted poppies that were displayed at Denny Cross, the Denny War Memorial at Broom Park, and Dunipace Parish Church.

Our Lockdown Stories collection was collated by our Great Place Digital Heritage Placement and Lockdown Stories Coordinator, Lorna Keddie.
