We received this letter from the RBL and our Councillors have decided to donates a number of these Poppies.
So, if you are wondering what we are doing displaying Poppies on Lamp posts across the Parish now you know. If you would like to contribute the details are below (you can, of course, contact our Clerk);
I am contacting you because The Royal British Legion and The Poppy Appeal is commemorating its Centenary on 15th May this year. This is an anniversary we hold dear in West Cheshire particularly as The Legion was started not too far from us in Birkenhead. The Legion was formed to support servicemen and women, ex-serving personnel and their families. In 2021, The Royal British Legion is still supporting those who serve through the Funds raised with its well-loved Poppy Appeal.
We are able to offer Lamppost Poppies which have proved very popular during the Poppy Appeal. However, local communities might like to use them to commemorate this special event and show their support during this time. The suggested donation is £5 each unit (lower for bulk orders) but they can also be re-used later in the year to show support for the Poppy Appeal.
