The Mayor of Gedling will launch this year’s poppy appeal on Friday.
Mayor Councillor Meredith Lawrence will buy the first poppy of the year at the Civic Centre, in Arnot Hill Park, this Friday to begin the Remembrance Tide.
As the first citizen of the borough, the Mayor will be joined by local MP Vernon Coaker along with representatives from District Royal British Legions to launch the appeal in Gedling borough.
Whilst the Royal British Legion continues to mark the centenary of the First World War, they are encouraging everyone to support the Poppy Appeal in remembrance of the fallen and in aid of the future of the living.
Gedling Borough Council is supporting this campaign, as the public will be able to donate and get poppies from the Civic Centre after this ceremony has taken place.
