The Anzac spirit is reaching all corners of the Riverina with the Ganmain Craft Cottage working their fingers to the bone to devise their own tribute.
Volunteers at the cottage have spent countless hours knitting poppies of varying shades of red to create a banner to display in the shop’s window.
President Jan Cox said the project took on a mind of its own after members starting knitting the poppies without a thought to what they would be used for.
But as the delicate flowers took shape, Mrs Cox said it was clear they needed to be displayed.
“People were knitting these poppies and we thought we should do something with them,” Mrs Cox said.
A banner with the number 100, in honour of 100 years since the Gallipoli landing, was made with the rest of the poppies bordering around it.
“I think we all need to do something to commemorate the event,” Mrs Cox said.
Ganmain Craft Cottage members will march in this weekend’s parade with the banner, which will then be displayed at the Bowling Club before a permanent home is found for it.
