Bramham Gala Saturday 28th June 2014 starting midday

Keith Innocent

We need your help!!!!

Despite our recent appeal in the Village Magazine we held our latest Gala meeting and had a great brain storming session but now we need you!

What do we need?

We need the following

We need more people to join our Committee to organise the events.

We need designers/computer experts to help prepare posters and programmes.

We also need more volunteers to run stalls and look after games etc. We will keep you in touch with exactly what we need you for. Obviously the more people that volunteer then we can operate rotas so you only need to offer an hour or two to help.

Let me know if you are willing to help or this could be the last Gala!!!

Sprinkle poppies in Bramham to mark The Centenary

Alison Mackie

LET’S ALL SPRINKLE A PACKET OF POPPIES….

“The old contemptibles” website about a wonderful poppy pledge idea to mark the centenary of the great war…

One small but very easy way you can play a part in the upcoming Centenary of the Great War is by taking the Poppy Pledge. It is very simple: all you have to do is sprinkle some poppy seeds. If every one takes one or two packets of seeds and sprinkles them anywhere. Your local park, outside the front of your house, in your garden, at school, at work, anywhere they can be seen. As a reminder of all the servicemen and women who lost their lives in the Great War and all conflicts since. It is an act that will serve as your personal act of remembrance and will serve as a permanent reminder that we have not and will not forget the sacrifices of our servicemen and women.

TAKE THE POPPY PLEDGE
With the impending centenary that is just over a year away much is being organised to mark the 100 year anniversary of the outbreak of World War One. No matter what events are organised and no matter how grand or expensive these events may be, nothing will ever eclipse or better the ultimate symbol of remembrance. 

How do I know what poppy seeds to plant?

Papaver rhoeas - Red Field Poppy Corn Poppy, Field Poppy, Flanders Poppy, or Red Poppy Single red flowers - the common field poppy. Once a common sight in cornfields, this brilliant red field poppy is perfect for a sunny wildflower garden or meadow, where it will self-seed freely. The four petals are vivid red, most commonly with a black spot at their base. It is a variable annual plant that can germinate when the soil is disturbed. The corn poppy has become associated with wartime remembrance in the 20th century, especially during Remembrance day.

Val Whitbread

“What a wonderful way to spend and afternoon… How fascinating looking at the village from so many different views”… What a great way to meet people from the village… What a wonderful village, so friendly and welcoming”.
