Poppy Appeal: From Pauline Parkyns, Poppy Appeal Organiser. As our Remembrance time has drawn to a close for this year, I would like to sincerely thank all the generous people of Lindfield for their amazing support of the Poppy Appeal this year. We have raised £9,000 which is £1,000 up on this time last year. This is only the beginning of the years appeal as the books do not close until September, so I am optimistic that we could have a bumper year. My thanks also to all the collectors who give up their time so generously, sometimes in horrid weather, although this year we were mostly very lucky. The money raised is gratefully received to help care for our injured Service Community who have served us in many conflicts throughout the world. They need our care now and will continue to do so as they age.
A very Happy Christmas and a bright New Year to all my readers. See you again in 2017! Liz.
