    Story

    The Nether Heyford British Legion are not able to order poppies this year from the British Legion (individual branches cannot order them this year).

    Poppies are normally sold door to door throughout the village and in the village pubs and shops to raise fund for the Nether Heyford branch of The British Legion.

    A coffee morning is also usually held to raise funds but is not possible this year either.

    The funds raised in the village pays for the wreaths that are laid on the war memorial on Remembrance Day in November.

    The approx cost for the wreaths is £80.

    All money raised including any over the required £80 will be given to the Nether Heyford branch of The British Legion with all results being published in the village newspaper The Prattler and online at HeyfordPrattler.org .

    The village is proud to remember the men on our war memorial and the full details of the men can be found on our Roll of Honour online at heyfordprattler.org/ww1

    After recently celebrating 75 years since VE Day of WW2 we cannot have a remembrance day with no wreaths.

    Poppies may be available in the big supermarkets.

    If you have any questions or comments then please do not hesitate to contact me.

      Amazing ! Thank you for all your support so far, looks like we have the wreaths covered. All additional money will be given to Nether Heyford British Legion local branch for further support to the armed forces community in the local area. Please keep giving to support the local village branch during this difficult year of restrictions etc. Thank you - Jez @ The Prattler www.britishlegion.org.uk
