King's Lynn Rotary cheque presentation.

This year’s Poppy Appeal was launched across West Norfolk at the weekend.

In King’s Lynn, a commemorative community mural remembering all those lost in conflicts since 1914 was also unveiled.

West Norfolk Mayor Colin Manning and his wife Julie opened the memorial in an empty shop in Broad Street.

“In 2014 we had a large number of people keen to show their support and pay their respects by sticking a poppy on the wall. We were really keen to run this mural again,” said Vancouver Quarter manager Abbie Panks.

Chairman of the King’s Lynn branch of the Royal British Legion said: “It is important we remember all those who fought in all conflicts since 1914. The money raised will go a long way to help ex-service personnel.”

Members of the town’s 42F Squadron of air cadets also took part in the event in the town centre on Saturday morning.

The Middleton Branch of the Legion launched their campaign at the Sainsbury’s store at the Hardwick roundabout.

Members of Lynn’s Rotary Club, which lays a wreath on Armistice Day, also attended the event and presented a cheque for £300 to the Royal British Legion.
