THE streets of Middlewich have been decorated with poppies donated by the Middlewich branch of the Royal British Legion.

The poppies have been placed on lamp-posts throughout the town by volunteers working for SP Energy Networks.

Margaret Scarlett, treasurer of the Royal British Legion in Middlewich, said: “The Middlewich Branch of the Royal British Legion would like to thank all their sponsors both business and personal, for the wonderful display of poppies on lampposts throughout the town.

“Many thanks also to SP Energy for placing the poppies on the lampposts.

“The presence of the poppies impressed both residents and guests at the recent unveiling of the WW1 fourteen extra names on the War Memorial and helped in enabling Middlewich to show its respect for members of the armed forces, past and present.

“Thank you all for helping the town to commemorate remembrance in this way.”
