An East Lancashire shop has ‘wowed’ customers with its latest window display for Remembrance Sunday.

Wardrobe By Simone, on Manor Road in Whalley, has erected a huge display of cascading poppies outside the front of their shop.

Hundreds of people have interacted with the social media post, impressed by the artistic display and mentioning that it caught their eye when they saw it.

The window display was created by photographer, Zoie Carter-Ingham, whose sister runs the clothing shop.

Zoie said she has been making window displays for the shop for six years, adding that the Remembrance Day ones are always well-received.

The poppies in this year's display are made from waterproof material and she said that it can take days to bring her creative vision to life. 

She added: “They’re always quite creative and it’s something I enjoy doing - it’s like respite really.”

In previous years she has made a polystyrene soldier for the front display along with poppy arches and balloon displays.

Zoie’s niece, who is also called Zoie, works in Wardrobe by Simone and said people enjoy seeing their poppy displays every year.

Zoie Geraghty said: “It’s a tradition that we’ve got on board with and it encourages everyone else to go out and buy their own poppies.

“We think it’s important that we remember the people who sacrificed their lives for us.

“This year’s display has been really well-received. Loads have people have come in and commented on how vibrant it is.

“People have told us they look forward to seeing it every year.”

Wardrobe by Simone isn’t the only business throwing themselves into the Remembrance Day commemorations this year.

The poppies will be prominently displayed on the front of buses on routes covering hundreds of miles every day across Lancashire and into Greater Manchester, along with others run by parent firm Transdev across the North, from Preston in the west to the Yorkshire Coast in the east.

The Holiday Shop in Blackburn have also created a window display covered in poppies and featured some information about a fallen soldier from Witton.
