The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal

In accordance with advice and instructions, which are in the interest of everyone's safety, there will be no door to door collections, or trays of poppies and collecting tins placed in business premises in the village this year.


However, The Royal British Legion do not want anyone, who would like one, to be without a Poppy. To this end, Poppies and a number of other items can be ordered from their website


In addition, some major supermarkets will have Poppies and collecting tins but at this point in time, I don't have any information relating to our local stores.

I have been able to order wreaths and crosses for those who have had these in previous years. I also have two spare wreaths which if anyone in the village is interested in having one, please email me ( and I will explain the donation process. I have been informed, there will be an outdoor service at St Martin's War Memorial on Sunday 8th November at 10.45 a.m. when wreaths and crosses can be placed around the memorial. It is anticipated the service will last between 25-30 minutes.

For full details of the services at the War Memorial at St Martins Church please see the Calendar Page.
