Royal British Legion
A sad day. At the last meeting of our branch it was agreed that due to the lack of numbers we were no longer able to continue. Every branch should have a minimum of six members to form the committee and for a long time we have not been able to meet this requirement. At the meeting all four active members were present and it was a unanimous decision that was the only option. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions this will probably not happen until next year as we would like, and according to the rules should have, a ceremony to mark the closing of the branch.
We will still be organising the Poppy Appeal each year and try to run some events to raise funds for the Legion. As I mentioned last month there will not be any door to door collections this year but there will be collecting boxes in as many pubs, shops and schools as possible. If you have any special requests for things like wooden crosses or car poppies I do have some that you could collect from me.
