For your diary:
The Royal British Legion
Have you seen the film Dunkirk? After discussions with Halstock Village Cinema, who show a film every month in Halstock Village Hall, it has been agreed that there will be an extra film shown on 3rd March. This will be Dunkirk and the money raised from this will be donated to the Poppy Appeal. So if you have not seen the film mark the date in your diary now and if you have seen it come and see it again, it is a very good film.
The next meeting of the Halstock and District Branch will be on Tuesday January 9th 2018 to the Rest and Welcome Inn at 7.30pm, if you would like to join us you would be most welcome.
As I reported in the October Chimes we were due to have a visit from RBL Dorset HQ at our AGM. We were very concerned that we may have to close if we could not attract more new members. However, we were pleasantly surprised to hear about a new scheme which will enable us to operate as we do now but will only require two named people, who must have internet connection, and the Chairman and I are very happy to be the named people. The only change will be that the small amount of money we hold as branch funds will in future be held by the head office but will still be under our control. As we will no longer be looking for committee members I am hoping that will encourage people to join us and help in the running of our fund raising events.
