Thank You To Our Community This Remembrance Week

With our branch close to the town’s War Memorial it is only fitting we make our remembrance display prominent and engage with our wonderful community. A huge thank you goes to Mr Scott Green, Mr John Purser and LJ Motorcycle Repairs of Twickenham for the loan of their amazing artefacts and decorations. Having her father as a motorcycle mechanic and having personally conducted several motorcycle hearse funerals this year, Victoria, our District Manager, felt it right we added a bike of that era to our display.

With her Grandad serving as a marine in WW2 she couldn’t resist not displaying Mr Green’s Marine band hat and bugle too. We have received a great number of people thanking us for another fascinating display and we hope the time spent looking at our windows gives all a moment to reflect and remember all who fought on the frontline, in the air, on the sea and back home.

Anyone is welcome to purchase a poppy or other poppy items from our branch and this year we are set to have raised another great amount for The Poppy Appeal.
