Poppy Picnic Fort Gardens Gravesend

The Branch was invited to have a stand at the Poppy Picnic, in Fort Gardens, Gravesend on Sunday 12th June. The weather was not kind to say the least but the hardy members of the branch turned out to man the stall

There were items for sale from Corps Enterprises (Sapper Shop) and Mrs Anne Allen selling bric-a-brac to raise funds for the branch.

Re-enactors and music played by local bands kept the atmosphere going, while the local Ford car enthusiast’s also displayed their cars.
