Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Market Harborough District Council in Leicestershire have told the RBL Poppy sellers that they must pay to raise money for their Poppy Appeal.
    It insists that the local branch should pay for a stall in Harborough's Indoor Market!
    Last year stallholders in thr Indoor Market had a whip-round to pay the charges.
    The Legion is being charged £16 for last Saturday, £12 and £14 for two Tuesdays and Friday.
    I have already sent my letter of disgust to the Leicester Mercury that front paged this story.
     
  2. Do they charge other charities?
     
  3. Where's the bus? I call shotgun.
     
  4. Alistair Swatridge
    Leader of Council
    Harborough District Council

    Can I suggest as it is a 66% majority run Tory Council we perhaps contact the Leader and ask what he is up to?

    PS Mods, I :D love the poppy
     
  5. I was informed on Monday ( with poppy box and rattling tin in hand) I could go anywhere but here:
