Poppies will still be sold in a village this year.
Organisers are unable to provide a house-to-house collection or use many outlets such as shops and businesses.
Poppy appeal organiser, Irving Prowse, said: “Despite the trials that we are facing the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in Congresbury will run from October 24 to November 7.
“Supplies many be obtained from Blue Diamond Cadbury Garden Centre, Tesco Express, St Andrews Church and possibly the War Memorial Hall.
“We are in urgent need of a few more collectors at the garden centre any day from 11am-1pm, 1pm–3pm and 3pm–5pm.

“There will also be a new innovation to boost the appeal at Re:Store in Broad Street where there will be locally made fabric masks available – I am hoping that everyone will be able to support this kind gesture.”
