Our poppy sellers are retiring this year after selling poppies in The Shires for over a decade. We would like to thank them for all the work they have done over the past 10 years.

Right to left in the picture Terry Davis served in Malaya, Bill Steele served in Korea and Les West served in Egypt all in the Royal Engineers.

This year Bill was invited to visit South Korea to attend part of a programme of remembrance by South Korea in appreciation for the UK's  response to their call for help in 1950.Some highlights of the trip included attending banquets, travelling on a bullet train visiting war memorials and attending a memorial service to remember those who fought so bravely 66 years ago.
