I would like to take this opportunity to thank once again all the folk of Lympstone who gave to the 2013 Poppy Appeal. I am overwhelmed by your generosity and am extremely pleased to report that I have banked an amazing £7025-28 on behalf of the village and the Commando Training Centre combined. An enormous thank you also to my willing band of House to House Collection volunteers some of whom go to extraordinary lengths to raise money for the Appeal (you know who you are!) and without whom it would just not be possible. Thank you.
