The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
David Bish/British Legion: October 2020
The 2020 Poppy Appeal will be launched on 22nd October and runs until Remembrance Sunday on 8th November.
In this year, unlike any other, due to the current Pandemic there are a number of changes. Poppies will be available in fewer outlets, but can also be downloaded or ordered online.
Donations can also be made by scanning the QR code on posters around the village or by text. Please donate whatever you can and wear your Poppy with pride.
Covid 19 has also had an effect on our plans for Remembrance Sunday, the Act of Remembrance will take place entirely within St Albans Church, with a restricted number in the congregation and a few representatives of local groups and organisations laying wreaths by the WW1 memorial plaque.
It was hoped that the wreaths could then be moved to the War Memorial, however, as many of you will have seen, it is out of bounds due to sinkholes appearing around the base of the memorial. It is now expected that the focus will be on George, the War Horse and a field of Poppy Crosses will be planted there.
Your local Poppy Appeal Organiser, David Bish, is happy to help you and can be contacted by email at TattenhallPoppyAppeal@outlook.com, or on 07801934974 should you have difficulty in obtaining a Poppy, Wreath or Poppy Cross.
