time with collectors, but we're delighted with the amount raised
and a big thank you goes to everyone who donated."

time to sell poppies for us. A special thank you goes to the Rotary
Club for all their work, and the cadet services."

is clearly very much worth it and we thank everyone for their support.

the Poppy Appeal."
