2020 Poppy Appeal

Jackie Jasper, our Corsley and Chapmanslade area Poppy Appeal Co-ordinator, says “As there are no house to house collections this year, there are limited places to donate and collect a poppy, so I wanted to let people know where poppies will be available in the village. Anyone may have a box with a small number of poppies to give to family and friends.”
