Once again Poppy selling time is nearly upon us and I would like to appeal to anyone who might be interested, to contact me if you would be happy to take collections door to door for the annual poppy appeal. We especially need collectors for the new estates on Milton Road and other areas of the village. Adderbury folk are very generous but we sometimes miss parts of the village due to a lack of collectors. If you can help this year please get in touch with me and I will pass your name to our local Poppy Collection. Organiser. Many thanks. Jean Moore Secretary. Adderbury and Milton Royal British Legion. 01295 810246 or jeaniemoore3@gmail.com.
