General News Each year our Poppy People numbers drop by thousands, as many of our older collectors decide they can no longer assist us.  They have well and truly done their bit, and now we need to focus on new faces to come forward and lend a hand.  Can you give two hours plus of your time to collect between 27th October and 8th November?  If you can help in Hemyock, please contact David Bawler on 01823 680352
