A message from our branch Chairman Eric Howden.
Can the follow be circulated and/or publicized wherever possible, we need as much circulation as possible in the hope that the public and members of the council will turn up at each location. It is our intention at Redcar Branch of the Royal British Legion to attend almost every war memorial/cenotaph in the Redcar and Cleveland Borough area. Obviously we hope RBL members will also attend with Tommy as we would like to play last post minutes silence and reveille at each location. Please pass on the following itinerary in the hope that as many people as possible will see "Tommy" in some location or other over the three days we are touring with him. The times are subject to change but we will try to be on time.
Monday 5th November - 10am Dormanstown Church, 10.25am Grangetown, 10.45am South Bank, 11.15am Ormesby Church, 11.35am Normanby, 12 noon Eston Square, 12.20pm Lazenby.
Tuesday 6th November - 10am New Marske, 10.25am Marske Church, 10.50am Saltburn, 11.15am Brotton, 11.35am Carlin How 11.55am Skinningrove, 12.15pm Loftus, 1pm Easington.
Wednesday 7th November - 10am Guisborough, 10.30am Skelton, 10.55am North Skelton, 11.15am Boosebeck, 11.40am Moorsholme, 12noon Lingdale.
Thank you to everyone for the help in circulating this in the hope that "Tommy" will be seen by many people. You may have noticed that he hasn't got a time for Redcar. He will actually be on show for the Launch of the North Yorkshire Poppy Appeal at Redcar's Garden of Remembrance, Coatham Road, Redcar at 11am Friday 26th October and again at Redcar Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday 11th November.
