THEN AND NOW Borough Green Past & Present
Every Year, Ray Chopping and his tireless band of Poppy volunteers are out pounding the streets, but this year they exceeded their wildest dreams. With the support of our Local Shops, and with Nisa leeting Ray set up inside, the collection this year exceeded £6000. There was almost a competition between our shops to see who could produce the best display , and these were the results: our Poppy Shops . We will be giving copies of the Award to these shops as a gesture of thanks for their magnificent efforts.
