At 11.00 o’clock at the Saxon’s Rest, High Street Cricklade, the Cricklade Branch of the Royal British Legion celebrated the 90 years with local schoolchildren. Pupils from Thames Pre-School, Prior Park Preparatory School and St. Sampson’s Junior School released a total of 90 balloons. The event was attended by members of the Branch with the Chairman, Councillors, and Officers of Cricklade Town Council. Pupils from St Sampsons read “In Flanders Field”, a poem which inspired the adoption of the Poppy as the emblem of the British Legion. A prayer was read by the Rev Judith Ashby, Vicar of St Sampson’s Church.
This event was sponsored by LOCATION, Estate agents, 30 High Street, Cricklade.
