About New Milton's Events

VE75 in New Milton is a major town event put together by a steering group involving a number of local community groups and the New Milton Town Council. The events are being facilitated by The New Milton Residents' Association and staged with the assistance of a number of local service groups including The Lions Club of New Milton, Milton Heritage Society, other community groups and individuals too numerous to detail.

Any profits made from the events or collections taken at: the "We'll Meet Again" commemorative concerts on Friday and Saturday 1st and 2nd May and the main free 'Picnic on the Clifftop' at Barton on Sea on Friday 8th May, will be donated to SSAFA - the Armed Forces charity, formerly known as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association.

    The Royal British Legion is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem, the red poppy. Every year, the Legion organises a countrywide network of Poppy Appeal collectors to meet huge public demand for poppies, the nation’s symbol of Remembrance.

    The Poppy Appeal raises about half of the funds needed for our welfare work every year.

    The 2019 Poppy Appeal will launch towards the end of October and it runs until New Milton's Annual Remembrance Day on Sunday 10th November.

    Collection will be made across New Milton and poppies will also be available at a number of major location across out town.
