RAF Cadet Joe launches Poppy Appeal in Boston

It was a proud moment for RAF Cadet Joe Fisher - and even prouder for his mum and dad - when he marched across Boston Market Place to play his part in the official launch of this year's Remembrance events.

Joe handed a poppy to Boston Mayor, Cllr Stephen Woodliffe, at the Poppy Appeal launch attended by standard bearers from the services, Royal British Legion personnel, cadets and motorcycle riders from the Royal British Legion Riders' Branch.

The backdrop was a huge lorry especially decorated for the Poppy Appeal with images of armed services personnel, poppies and the legend "Lest we forget".

Boston's Remembrance Day Service will take place at the War Memorial in Memorial Gardens beginning at 10.45am on Friday, November 11. At 8pm on that day there will be a Polish Independence Day Gathering at the War Memorial to honour the part played by people from Poland in support of the Allies during the Second World War.

Services will take place at churches throughout the borough, including Boston Stump, at 10am on Remembrance Sunday, November 13.
