Wimborne 2016 Poppy Appeal Launch

The poppy appeal for 2016 launches on Saturday the 22nd of October at 11am.  If you come along to The Square, you will see a convoy of historic military vehicles arriving in town with the Mayor!  The Mayor Cllr Mrs Sue Cook will then purchase the first poppy to launch the appeal.  The Town Crier and a trumpeter will also be there and will be joining in with the start of the start of the Food and Drink Festival.  Not to be missed, come along and help to promote the poppy launch!

There is also a desperate need for volunteers to help to sell poppies at static points in the town centre.  Full details are available at the Wimborne Royal British Legion in West Borough where people can add their names to lists of locations on various dates and times to sell during the weeks leading up to Remembrance Sunday.  Full details can be obtained by popping into the club, telephoning 01202 885541 or by email wimbornerbl@yahoo.com.
