�7,200 for poppies
I would like to thank the traders, the licensed trade, shops and the nine schools in the Newport and Whiddon Valley area for the generous donations to this year’s Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
The total collection for the area will be approximately �7,200.
Special thanks to Legion members, friends and the Air Force Cadets who helped to make the bumper collection outside the Rose Lane Tesco store. Our thanks are due to the store for their co-operation.
I would also like to thank the residents of Swimbridge who contributed �268 to the Poppy Appeal
