Lamp Post Poppies
Being the first community to install the lamp post poppies, the Poppy Committee in this challenging time, are still carrying on the tradition in raising money and awareness for the Royal British Legion.
This will be achieved in a simpler and safe way.
The poppies will be installed at a reachable height with a blank label for people to write their own inscription. So choose your own Poppy in the area of your choice.

Once you have done that, payment of £5 per Poppy can be made (on trust) in several ways:

• Online -
• Phone - 0845 845 1945
• Text - POPPY5 to 70545
• POPPY10 to 70545
• At Automech Cadishead where you can tap and go…
• Or any RBL collection tin

Let’s keep on supporting our Armed Forces!
