Poppy appeal

HIGH Peak residents are being urged to answer the Royal British Legion’s plea for volunteers to sign up as Poppy People as the season of remembrance approaches.

The borough’s Mayor Pat Jenner is calling on locals aged 16 and over to register to sell poppies between Thursday October 25 and Sunday November 11 by calling 0800 085 5924.

The Poppy Appeal provides the main source of funding for the Legion’s support schemes.
