Launching the Poppy Appeal at Southport Town Hall

10.30am on Saturday morning I had the pleasure of meeting folk from the British Legion along with young people from the local cadet corps when I launched this years Poppy Appeal in Southport

The sun shone brightly on our gathering despite the cold weather and I had a few words to say before every dispersed around the town to sell poppies. This year sees the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of the Somme. In almost every town and village of the nations families lost loved ones in that battle. We must not forget their sacrifice. We owe a huge debt to our servicemen and women and I hope that the Poppy Appeal will be well supported this year
