"We are glad to be able to come together as a community from across the town and participate in the act of Remembrance.

“We are also giving people the opportunity to ‘Sponsor a Poppy’ – as we wish to repeat this act of commemoration as in previous years pre-Covid.

"Sponsor a large poppy for a minimum donation of £3 and show your appreciation on the route of the annual Remembrance Day procession through Sandy. All donations will go to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.”
