#Poppy Collection

It will soon be time for the Poppy Collectors to visit all the houses in the Parish.  This is a special year for remembrance being the centenary of the beginning of WW1 and we hope that you will give generously.

We need a collector for Wootton – could you spare the time to volunteer for this?  David Rowe did this job for 10 years but sadly he died a few weeks ago.

For details please contact Hilda Tideswell on 324203 or Trilby Shaw on 300359.
