Letter: Poppy collection broke all records

The Poppy Appeal in the Gretton district has broken all records with a grand total of £1,937.25 collected.

Thank you everyone for your generous donations to help the Royal British Legions caring work for our ex-servicemen and women.

Grateful thanks are expressed to all the ladies and gentlemen who did the door-to-door poppy sales in Gretton and to Mr and Mrs Frankland for arranging the Poppy sales in Harringworth. Remembrance Day services at Spanhoe Airfield in the morning and Gretton Baptist Church in the afternoon were very well attended.

The parade to the war memorial following the church service was a magnificent turnout.

This year’s Poppy Appeal in the Gretton district was co-ordinated by Rob Clarke who is thanked for his sterling work and commitment.
