poppies Haverfordwest - Remembrance Day

4,000 knitted poppies adorn Haverfordwest for First World War centenery

Visitors to Haverfordwest town centre on Sun 11th November will be greeted with a vibrant sea of knitted poppies and other woolly creations as a sign of respect and remembrance to those who lost their lives in the First World War.


This is thanks to the good work of Haverfordwest Yarn Bombers, a group of 30-40 knitters aged 24 to 87 years who take pride in producing these wonderful works of art to light up the town.

Sally Williams, founder and coordinator of the group is delighted with the result of their latest yarn bomb, having taken 5 months to prepare,

“I would like to extend a huge thank you for all your fantastic comments, it makes all our work well worthwhile. We started this group over 3 years ago with the sole intention of making the town look nice and to put a smile on everyone’s faces. That I know we have achieved.”

After a well deserved rest, we look forward to seeing what the group has in store for us next – thank you all for injecting some happiness into our community.
