ALLOA COMMUNITY COUNCIL has thanked a Wee County group for providing free poppy-making kits to its stall at the town's Friday market.

Resonate Together, based on North Castle Street, provided the popular poppy packs, which proved extremely useful to people looking to mark Remembrance Sunday by decorating their home.

The community council chair, Rev Jason Lingiah, said: "In this year of a stay-at-home Remembrance, it is good that people can engage in considering the sacrifice of many in a creative way, which can easily include young people.

"I am grateful to Angela Watt of Resonate and her volunteers for making the poppy kits and distributing them in this alternative Remembrance."

As well as distributing the poppy packs, Alloa Community Council has also created an online resource to mark Remembrance Sunday.

The resource is a directory of the names and addresses of the fallen from Alloa.

A post on the organisation's website said: "We have the names on a spreadsheet and are happy to share with schools and other groups to preserve the memory of those [who] died for their country."
