Preparing for poppy day

THE Royal British Legion now has wreaths available for collection ahead of Remembrance Sunday.

More than 50 pre-ordered wreaths are at the Halifax office at 4 Hopwood Lane.

And those who wish to place an order have until the end of this week to do so.

Poppy appeal organiser Pauline Dawson said some people may wish to place their own reach on a war memorial or private grave.

Prices range from £9 through to £17.

The RBL would also like to hear from volunteers willing to help selling and delivering poppies from October 24 through to Remembrance Sunday on November 13.

The office (opposite the Courier) is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 10 am to 2 pm (Telephone 01422 380131).
