The 100-year-old – who lives in Bassaleg – is well-known across Gwent for his work selling poppies for the Royal British Legion’s annual Poppy Appeal, which he has done for the past 30 years. “I said that [I’d retire] the last two years but Mike [Jones] has just told me I’m registered to come down again this year. I don’t mind as long as I’m healthy, I enjoy it,”
