We would like to thank residents of
Wrington, Redhill and Butcombe for their generosity in helping our Branch to, so far, raise £4273.82 for the Poppy Appeal. Our thanks also go to all the House-to-House Collectors and local businesses who give so
generously of their time and assistance over Remembrancetide. Hopefully this sum will increase as the year progresses, as the final date for the 2016 Appeal is not until the end of September 2017.

These monies are used by the R.B.L. in their welfare work for veterans and their dependants to help them in many different ways.

The next meeting of the local Branch will be at the Bowls Club Pavilion, 6.30pm on Monday 30th January.

Remembering the Wrington Fallen 1914 -1918

I have 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.
