WWI Centenary Poppy Souvenirs On Sale

The Centenary Commemoration book and bookmarks were launched this morning alongside the unveiling of the poppy blankets so cleverly created by the West Witney WI. Between them, the books and blankets perfectly capture the tremendous community spirit and effort that went into this event last year. You can buy a pictorial souvenir book for £7.50 and a bookmark with original knitted poppy for £2 from the Town Hall from today, while stocks last.  Profits will be shared between Forces Charities and Royal British Legion.
