More than 100 pack the village hall for the annual ‘taste of Christmas’ coffee morning
More than 100 people attended a ‘taste of Christmas’ coffee morning organised by Kilmington Branch of the Royal British Legion at the village hall on Saturday.
Guests enjoyed coffee, mulled wine and minced pies and were able to browse or buy a host of different products ranging from delicious cakes, plants and crafts to specially crafted seasonal goodies, of which the wooden reindeers proved extremely popular.
During the event, the branch chairman Cdr Stafford Seward OBE (RN Rtd) presented poppy collector awards to Avis Lockwood, Jean Falconer and Jane Chalk for five years and Jenny Nichols for 10 years.
He also thanked everyone for their outstanding support and help. The Poppy Appeal, including the quiz at the New Inn and collection from the church service raised more than £4,000. The coffee morning raised another £1,400.
