There is a rumour going around at the moment that staff in Body Shop, Poundland and students in the college at Europa Park are forbidden to wear the Royal British Legion poppys. Is there any truth in this rumour?

no it's another facebook lie frown please read all of this smile

Veterans, residents and dignitaries will converge upon Alma Square on Sunday for the annual Garden of Remembrance service.

The ceremony, organised by the Scarborough branch of the Royal British Legion, starts at noon and has taken place in the town for more than 20 years.

The service allows veterans and members of the public to plant crosses to commemorate service personnel during the two world wars and conflicts around the world.

A corps of bugles from the Yorkshire Volunteers Band will play the hymns Eternal Father To Save and O God, Our Help In Ages Past before sounding the Last Post and marching through the town’s streets.

Standard bearers and cadet forces will also be on parade.

Last year, more than 100 people met to pay their respects to servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives during conflicts across the globe. The service saw hundreds of people line Westborough to applaud veterans as they went to the Town Hall to take the salute.

John Anderson, BEM, secretary of the Scarborough branch of the Royal British Legion, said: “The service gets better each year and last year’s was the first where I heard spontaneous applause for the veterans as they marched. It was exceptional.” The Alma Square service takes place a week before the main remembrance events, including the service at Oliver’s Mount.

This year’s Poppy Appeal marks the Royal British Legion’s 90th anniversary, with organisers again aiming to help past and present members of the British Armed Forces and their families, with a strong focus on supporting the Afghanistan generation.

The campaign raised £59,065.48 in Scarborough last year and the 2011 appeal was launched with a full poppy drop and musical concert.

[/u]The appeal has been handed a further boost after McDonald’s, The Body Shop and Poundland confirmed they were allowing staff to wear a poppy with pride.

Scurrilous national speculation had suggested the companies had banned employees from being able to show their support.[u]

Just out of interest, are the employees required to wear one or just allowed to do so if they want to?
