Debra Showell says:

I have been to Surrey Quays every day for the last week. There is no one there selling poppies. I have just come back from there and still no poppies!!!

John says:

Debra, they have been outside tesco, normally from about 4pm weekdays and from 11 am weekends
Only a few days have been missed due to not having enough volunteers.
