The official period for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in 2019 will be 26th October to 11th November. The collectors will be at Tesco and Asda from 2nd November to 9th November and at Wilkin & Sons from 26th October and there will be tins at various local businesses from 26th October to 11th November. Remembrance Sunday will be on the 10th. The Tiptree District now encompasses Great & Little Braxted, Messing and Layer Breton. I am also looking after Layer de la Haye, which held a Remembrance Beer Festival at the Donkey and Buskins.

New collectors are always welcome, so please get in touch with Sue to volunteer, you will need to fill in this form. Any businesses and organisations which haven’t taken part before are also encouraged to get in touch.
There are various collection slots that aren't covered yet, so please get in touch if you can volunteer. Please see the grids below and note that the Wilkin & Sons collections are at different times of day to Asda and Tesco. Sunday collections are also at different times to match opening hours. Key: A - Asda slot, T - Tesco slot, W - Wilkin & Sons slot. If the letter is red it means there is nobody scheduled so far, if it is black it means it is to make up a team of two.
The first week at Wilkins is mainly covered thank you. The second week needs volunteers, one (or a pair) is urgent at 12:00 on the 3rd.
