Cascades of handmade poppies will be erected on Chesterfield town hall and shops this weekend to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The eye-catching showpieces will be the culmination of a mission by the borough council and Chesterfield Combined Ex-Services Association to commemorate this important milestone.
