Wye Poppy Appeal 2020
The 99th Poppy Appeal this year is going to be very different. For example, for COVID-19 reasons there will be no traditional door-to door collections anywhere. However, there will be trays of traditional poppies in key locations around Wye and surrounding parishes. Also, please look out for pop-up stalls in Church Street, Wye for extra items, including enamel 2020 poppy lapel badges, and commemorative VE75 badges.

The Wye and District Poppy Appeal area covers the parishes of Godmersham, Crundale, Bodsham, Elmsted, Hastingleigh, Brook and Wye with Hinxhill, and includes Naccolt, Bilting and Bodsham.
