Comedian John Bishop has made a national plea for volunteers to help with this year's Poppy Appeal.
Sadly, we do not have a Liverpudlian comedian in the village to make a plea for our own Milford on Sea village volunteers, so you will have to do with an big bloke with a weird sense of humour.
Our Milford on Sea Royal British Legion (Women's Section) is run by Freda Cheyney. Freda was awarded an MBE for her services to the local Guides and other voluntary orgainsations, and now in her nineties, she is still busy helping others.
This year, village volunteers are proving short on the ground to do house to house and street collecting for Poppy Day. I know we are all happy to put something in the tin, but can you donate a bit of your time from around 26th October as well? - It would help so many.
As the nation's custodian of Remembrance, the Legion is committed to helping everyone understand the importance of Remembrance, so those sacrifices are never forgotten.
To lend a hand for an hour or two, please call Freda on 01590 642899, or Jan England on 01590 642291 / firstname.lastname@example.org
