Poppy collection planned for Gainsborough’s Farmers Market

On Remembrance Day there will be a Poppy Collection and Appeal by the Royal British Legion alongside Last Post and Reveille at 11am during November Farmers’ and Craft Market in Gainsborough.

At the market there are to be performances by the LahDiDahs, 1940’s and vintage close harmony trio of soprano, alto and mezzo. They are based in the East Midlands with a passion for keeping alive the songs of the past.

Bridget from the Lahdidahs 1940’s said: “We will be at the Farmer’s and Craft Market as part of the Poppy Collection Day event, where we will be performing some 1940’s and wartime songs and taking part in a short ceremony of remembrance. It’s important that we remember our servicemen past and present and highlight their sacrifice for future generations and we are very pleased to be involved.”

There will also be a poppy wall of remembrance where people can craft their own poppy and add a message.

Vintage vehicles will be on display alongside a 20th Century Living History Group re-enacting drills.

Vintage stalls will be joining the usual traders offering the best in local, fresh, homemade and handmade produce.

Nicola Marshall, Town’s Centre Manager at West Lindsey District Council said: “This Farmers and Craft Market is a special day where we will remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving for their country. Join us to honour the members of the armed forces as we are joined by the Royal British Legion and friends.”
