This year’s house to house collection in Ashwellthorpe and around the Ashwellthorpe Industrial Estate, together with the other collections mentioned below, raised a total of £592.91, which is an even greater amount than last year’s collection.Thanks are due to the collectors Liz Ball, Carole and Richard Bradford, Annette Bunting, Lin Packer and Jennifer Robbie.

This total sum also included the money contributed by customers and raised from collecting tins in the Kings Head and White Horse public houses and the sum of £50.00 given by Ashwellthorpe and Fundenhall Parish Council for the poppy memorial crosses which are placed around Ashwellthorpe and Fundenhall War Memorials to honour the memory of each of those lost in the 1st and 2nd World Wars.

But, without the generosity of all the villagers and, indeed, all those who contributed to our Poppy Collection, this vast sum could not have been raised. So, thank you all very much.
