The official period for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in 2018 will be 27th October to 10th November. The collectors will be at Tesco and Asda from 3rd November to 10th November and at Wilkin & Sons from 27th October and there will be tins at various local businesses from 27th October. Remembrance Sunday will be on the 11th. The Tiptree District now encompasses Great & Little Braxted, Messing and Layer Breton. 

More volunteers are needed:
