Towns and villages across Tynedale have come up trumps with streets and buildings decked out in a sea of red to mark Remembrance Day.

Determined to mark the 100 years since the end of the First World War, people turned out in droves to make their communities stand out for the commemorations.

The knitting and crocheting of poppies has taken the district by a storm with groups gathering to create as many as possible to form poignant and stunning displays – whether in churchyards, cascades from trees or on lamp posts.

The organisation for this weekend has been paramount. A group in Riding Mill began its work more than a year ago – getting former residents and family and friends from far and wide involved – knitting more than 6,000 poppies.

The projects across the district have brought together residents young and old, with dozens of schools and groups taking part. Their work is a display of the community spirit in Tynedale, and their commitment to ensuring we remember those who lost their lives.
