Surrey Poppy Launch at the Lightbox Woking

It was a perfect venue for Surrey’s poppy launch,

which was well attended and ,with the Lord- Lieutenant presenting certificates to last years top poppy distributors.The President of RBL Surrey made some thoughtful introductory remarks and Dame Penelope Keith DBE,Dl recited In Flanders fields by John McCrae;It was an ispiring start to the British Legions 2019 poppy appeal.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
