Royal British Legion (RBL) Poppy Appeal Organiser required

Due to changing family circumstances the Poppy Appeal Organiser for RBL Area TCF19 (Maiden Newton, Cattistock and surrounding area) is unable to continue.  Therefore, a new Organiser is required for the Poppy Appeal 2019.

This voluntary position requires very little effort for most of the year but significant commitment for about four to six weeks around the period of Remembrance in November each year.  Essentially the main duties are the preparation, distribution and collect of Poppy Appeal trays and collection tins; counting and banking of all monies collected; and completion of all necessary returns to the RBL Poppy Appeal central office.

If you are willing to take over this position supporting a very well-known and worthwhile charity or for further information please contact the outgoing Organiser, Peter Dobbs on 01300 321550 or as soon as possible.

Warning – Opportunist thieves operating in the village.

Around mid morning on Monday 15 July, brazen thieves stole a hedge trimmer from the side of a house in Cattistock. Although they were seen, they managed to make off in a white transit van. This a reminder that we should all be vigilant, noting any unusual vehicle movements, and take steps to protect our property.
