Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal Launch

Huntingdon Poppy Appeal Launch

Saturday 26th October 2019

For the past 98 years volunteers all across the country have helped with collecting for the Poppy Appeal which supports all those that have served in our Armed Forces when help is needed. Veterans today can be in their teens and may need help and support for many years.

To launch the start of collecting for the Poppy Appeal this year there will be a

"Poppy Blitz " in the town starting at 10-00am with the Huntingdon Town Mayor Steve McAdam and Mrs Audrey McAdam the Mayoress, veterans from the local Royal British Legion branch with support from serving uniformed personnel including Army, Air force and Navy from RAF Wyton Military Base who have volunteered to help collect.

Mr Bill Redford who is 92 and a Royal Engineers Veteran of WW2 has also volunteered to help and as he was a Corporal in the Royal Engineers he will be escorted by a serving Corporal from the same regiment.

There will also be several vintage and modern military vehicles in the Market Square and subject to availability members of the regional Bikers Branch with their superbikes. Bill Redford is a veteran member of the "Bikers" at 92!!

At 11-00am everyone will gather in the Market Square to take part in " Poppy Petal Drop" over the assembled collectors vehicles, bikes and military supporters from the balcony of the Town Hall .

All are welcome to attend and members of the Huntingdon Branch will be in town early to remind everyone that they are most welcome to join in.

Last year the Royal British Poppy Appeal raised over £50 million for the first time ever and Huntingdon residents contributed over £36,000.

For anyone wishing to help or request a wreath to lay on Remembrance Sunday or to join the local branch please contact Judith Armstrong, Branch Secretary Juditharmatrong1@gmail.com


Remembrance Sunday Service and Parade

Remembrance Sunday is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. On this day, people across the nation pause to reflect about the sacrifices made by our brave Service men and women.

This year's Remembrance Sunday will take place on the Market Square on Sunday 10th November 2019. There will be a short parade and service, which is organised in conjunction with RAF Wyton to mark this day. There will be a wreath laying service at the Thinking Soldier statue, following this there will be a march along the High Street and St Mary's Street. We always urge as many members of the community to join those paying tribute to the millions who have lost their lives through times of conflict and war and would welcome any additional community groups, organisations or charities who wish to participate in the 2019 commemorations.

If you would like to participate please email town.council@huntingdontown.gov.uk

A two-minute silence will also be held on the Market Square on Monday 11th November 2019.
