A Coffee Morning was held on Saturday 6 April in the Reading Room, hosted by our Chairman Mr M Wool, to thank our Poppy Collectors for their work in helping the Branch raise £4057.22. This is slightly down on the previous year, but excellent in the current economic climate.
Four of our collectors were presented with long service awards:- Mrs P Wathen; Mrs E Clark; Mrs J Pemberton and Mr P Owen.
As most of our collectors are past retirement age, it would be good to have some younger people ready to take over when they eventually decide to give up their rounds. If you would be able to give some time just once a year to help with the collection, please contact me on 862621 so that I can have a list of replacements to step when required.
