This is how a display of about 4,500 ceramic poppies will look in a north Norfolk church, as part of the VE-Day75 commemorations.
The 'weeping window' display at Cromer parish church was inspired by a similar installation at the Tower of London in 2014.
The display will be part of three days of commemorations from May 8 to 10, which is being organised by the town council in partnership with town businesses, organisations and volunteers.
Poppies will be again be available to reserve or buy at Cromer Town Council's North Lodge Park offices on Saturday, February 15, from 10am to 2pm.
Once the display has been dismantled, purchasers will be able to collect their poppy from the church on May 14.
