St John's Church in Largs are hoping to make a cascade of poppies to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

The symbolic and eye-catching tribute is expected to be erected on the Victorian built church near Largs seafront in time for Remembrance.

All ages in the congregation are taking part, and even the Largs Girls Brigade are playing their part in knitting the poppies for the display.

Reverend Jonathan Fleming of St John's Church is looking forward to the special tribute.

He said: "We are planning on doing a poppy waterfall down St John's. We are hoping that all the community will get involved and it will be something very special indeed.

"There will be a cascade of poppies and we will attach them to a cargo net and we will hire a cherry picker to erect it and let it fall down on the frontage.

"We are planning to leave it up for the rest of November and onwards towards Christmas.

"We thought given it was such an important centenary to mark the end of the First World War that we thought we should do something important - and I am sure it will be something very memorable and fitting for the town."

Knitted and crocheted poppies will form part of an art display will adorn the front of the church.

Largs is paying its respects as the important anniversary of the end of the Great War approaches later this year.

The flower bed decoration on the esplanade next to Greenock Road has a special commemoration as the town readies itself for a number of events to mark the centenary.

On Armistice Sunday, there will be the traditional street parade through town followed by a festival of remembrance is taking place arranged by The Royal British Legion Scotland Largs branch.

An ecumenical service involving all the churches will be taking place on the day. There will be marquees up at the War Memorial so people can sit under cover for the special service which will last for 45 minutes.

There will also be the traditional wreath casting on the Cumbrae to Largs ferry in respect of those who were involved in the Merchant Navy, seafarers, and all who perished at sea during the world wars.
