Earlier this year, the Buckie's Roots and Buckie Arts and Crafts Group launched a project encouraging groups and individuals to knit, crochet, sew poppies which will adorn the war memorial quadrant of Cluny Square. Members of the public can even create poppies from the bottoms of juice and water bottles.

One of those organising the BCHS contribution was senior youth worker Barbara Leitch.

She said: "We've been working on this for the last three weeks or so and we've had a great response from both staff and students.

"Most of the poppies have been sewed with some knitted. The Fabric Club made quite a few over a couple of weeks and we sat out in the social area at lunchtimes to work on the poppies where quite a few people joined us.

"It was very much a team effort and we're looking forward to seeing the poppies in the display."

The poppies are set to be formally handed over to the Working Together Group at Buckie Arts and Crafts Fair on SaturdayOctober 5, which is to be held in the Fishermen's Hall from 10am to 4pm.
