AN ALLOA business has put up a unique poppy display in its window to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Staff at Macdonald and Morson Dental Care created the poppy display by hand, using coloured paper and cardboard templates.

The impressive poppies were unveiled over the weekend.

Janet Morgan, 52, a senior dental nurse with the firm who helped make the display, told the Advertiser: "The idea for the poppies came from the Alloa Town Centre group on Facebook.

"They posted something asking if all the shops would do something to mark 100 years since the end of the War."

Keen to make a special effort, the team went all out to create the display.

Janet said: "It was myself and a couple of members of staff that took part.

"The reaction we've had from customers and clients has been really positive, especially some of the older patients who are saying that it's really great – they all like it.

"All the staff are pleased with it now it's finished too, it's looking really good."
