It is also offering the facility at its usual shopping centre base, during normal opening times, alongside its wide range of crafts and activities.

Founder of The Crafty Makery Hub Shane Davies said: ‘The Crafty Makery is going on tour during October and we are inviting any group or individual who would like to make a clay poppy to add to our display of poppies as part of this year’s remembrance service in November.

‘We are also looking for groups that meet regularly to contact us and we will provide the materials, equipment and details to allow you to make a poppy for the appeal.’
