The Poppy Appeal in Milford on Sea

The Royal British Legion 2019 Poppy Appeal begins in Milford on Sea on Saturday 26th October 2019. 

Although door to door collections no longer take place in all but a few roads in the village, there will once again be trays of poppies in most of the village shops, and volunteers doing street collections, at  hope, many times over the two week collection period. 

Please try and get your poppy in the village rather than in neighbouring places, it helps the village total and custom for the shops who make space for the boxes! 

Most boxes have some 2019 dated metal poppy pins in, and Mark at Village News will also have a supply of these available. 

If you would like to help with the Appeal in any way it's not to late to offer, or if you would like a poppy wreath, please contact: - 01590 642291
