Reader Janet Flynn penned a special poppy poem for Remembrance Sunday...
Forget lights put up a poppy
Do we really need Christmas lights outside your store?
Before October is out - I implore
They may look pretty & light up the sky
But way too early can I ask why?
Wouldn’t it have been a perfect opportunity to display
A poppy in lights for Remembrance day
For 100 years sacrifices have been made
It could have been a tribute for the price they paid
To pay respect to the ones who didn’t make it back
Some young, all brave, no courage did they lack
There is still time to change your mind
A fitting tribute to those left behind...
