Tandridge District Councillor Jackie Wren – she represents the Oxted & Limpsfield Residents Group – the president of the Oxted Royal British Legion branch was at the Woodhouse Centre in Oxted to help the Centre users with making poppies and to spread the message of the Legion’s Remembrance weekend on November 10-11.
This year’s Remembrance has extra special significance since it is 100 years since the end of the First World War.
On November 10 the club will be using its big tv screen to watch the Festival of Remembrance broadcast from the Royal Albert Hall.
The format for the Remembrance Day parade has slightly changed. The parade from the Club to the memorial will take place at 10.15am where wreaths will be laid and it is hoped that the names of the people who gave their lives and who appear on the memorial will be read aloud .
The parade will then reform and parade to St Mary’s Church for the annual service of Remembrance.
After the service there will be a buffet back at the club and during the afternoon there will be a raffle for the Poppy Appeal and entertainment from ‘Whisky Sours’
