About New Milton's Events

VJ75 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 The Lions Club of New Milton and staged with the assistance of a number of local service groups including Milton Heritage Society, and 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 7th * 8th May 2021 and the main free 'VJ75 Party on the Clifftop' at Barton on Sea on Saturday 15th August 2020, will be donated to SSAFA - the Armed Forces charity, formerly known as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association and to the Royal British Legion.


Supported by







    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 2020 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.

    Please give generously and help our local Branch achieve a record sum to support the work of The Royal British Legion.
