Pop bottle poppies create stunning display at Doncaster park – PICTURES

Pop bottles dumped at a Doncaster park have been put to good use – after being turned into a stunning display for Remembrance Sunday.

Volunteers at Doncaster’s Sandall Park spent weeks collecting discarded drinks bottles and then turned the bottom of the containers into a colourful cascade of poppies at the Thorne Road entrance to the popular visitor attraction.

An appeal was also put out for knitted or crocheted poppies to sell and the surplus from that appeal were included in the display.

Friends of Sandall Park, the volunteer group which looks after the park, collected the discarded plastic pop bottles.
