In Memoriam   It is with the deepest regret that we record the death of Heather Morris (nee Pickering) after a long illness. She had been a stalwart member of the Branch and her organisational skills were put to good use, in particular with the successful fund-raising lunches. We extend our deepest sympathy to John and her family. She is a great loss.

Branch Meetings  We have received a directive from County via London that, until further notice, there will be no face to face meetings at Branch or any higher level. This includes AGM! We will hold regular phone calls between members, in particular your committee, to keep you informed.

Poppy Appeal 2020  The annual Poppy Appeal will begin on 22nd October. Lacking a PAO of our own, I would ask everyone in the village to buy poppies at local outlets. It is unlikely that we will have door-t-door collection because of Covid 19.

Remembrance Sunday  Rev Julie Read and your committee will be discussing arrangements. Hopefully we may be able to hold a near full-scale service as in the past. Watch this space.

Gordon Browne            Chairman
