Children join choirs to launch Poppy Appeal
Choirs sang and buglers played at the regional launch of the Poppy Appeal in Bath.
Bath was chosen to host the launch of the Somerset and Bristol appeal.
The event at Abbey Church Yard marked the official start of the appeal, which will also see the official dedication of the Field of Remembrance outside the church this Sunday.
During the launch children from the Paragon School read a poem.

This year organisers hope to beat that.
