Poppy Collectors were honoured at a Coffee Morning held at the Six Bells PH on Saturday 21 April. Among the rewards were certificates for 35 years of collecting. Pete Collis, Welfare Officer for the Branch said "Without the sterling effort of our Poppy Collectors we would be unable to carry out our vital work helping the serving and ex-serving community and their dependants. It is a fantastic achievement for our collectors, epecially when October and November can be so cold and damp." The Branch last year collected £20,595 for the poppy appeal.
Branch President Norman Osborne and Chairman John White presented a certificate of Afilliation to Sir Michael Marshall, Chairman of the Civillian Committee and the Fl Lt Richard Slack CO of 104 (City of Cambridge) Sqn Air Cadets at their annual presentation evening held at Marshall's Airport, Cambridge on Wednesday 14 December 2011.
