The Afternoon at the Legion was then held at the club in Mill Road and featured live music from Jayne Darling, food, a bar and poppy appeal raffle.

Over at Duxford Imperial War Museum, RAF cadets and standard bearers marched from the Hangar Base to the Conservation Hall in AirSpace before the traditional service of remembrance at 1pm, which was led by the Reverend Phil Sharkey.

A service was also held in Melbourn at 10.50am in All Saints’ Church.

The organisers of the Royston Poppy Appeal would like to thank all the volunteers who helped out, including Oliver aged six (pictured) – one of the youngest volunteers who suffers from EDs – Ehlers Danlos syndrome – which causes pain, dislocations and fatigue.

He was committed to the cause and spent three hours selling poppies in Tesco.
