POPPIES and other tributes have been used to dress many Island shops and businesses in the run up to remembrance.

There's a delightful tribute window at Little Art at the Barn at Arreton Barns, showing artwork surrounded by poppies.

Pets with Hart in Newport's Holyrood Street saw owners Sharon and David Groves create a display marking remembrance.

Animals were a huge contribution to the war effort, including horses, dogs and pigeons, and the store wanted to reflect that in their display — the purple poppies represent animals lost in both wars.

Kiaya Brentnall created a display on the doors and frontage of Isle of Wight Jobs.
