Branch News & Announcements

The Branch A.G.M. was held on Monday 5th November. The Committee has stayed mainly the same except for Mr & Mrs Mike Wool leaving us. They were given a gift in appreciation of their work over the years. Two new Committee members were voted in.

We would like to thank the businesses in the Village for their displays marking Remembrancetide, they certainly make a difference. Also our thanks, once again, go to Jez & Lucy Empson at The Boot Shop for allowing us to set up our Annual Branch display. This year we concentrated on WW1 and included a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the formation of R.A.F.

The Poppy Appeal monies have not yet all come in at the time of writing this article, so the total of the Parish collection will be in the February issue of the Journal..

Remembering the Wrington Fallen 1914 -1918

The late Peter Myers published a booklet about the fifteen First World War fatal casualties recorded on the Wrington war memorial, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the War's start, and pay tribute to the fallen. It is on sale in Amors, Buglers and the Golden Lion.

All profits will go to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
