A presentation took place, prior to the Council meetings held on 28 November 2016, for Mr Brian Mossom of Maryport, in recognition of his role over the last 15 years administering the Poppy Appeal for the British Legion in the Maryport Area.
Congratulations were given and Mr Mossam thanked members for the kind gesture and outlined how he had become involved in the appeal and his experiences over the period.
He was presented with a poppy themed memorial. The Poppy Appeal in the Maryport area is now managed by Councillor Carol Tindall, with support from the Town Council.
A total of almost £5,000 was raised in the 2016 appeal.
