The Ruddington & District Branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL) is in danger of closing due to a lack of active members. The Branch has organised a Special General Meeting on Thursday 1st February at 8pm in St Peter’s Rooms to discuss the situation.
Everyone is welcome, so please come along, have your say and help save our local Branch from closure. (Don’t worry if you can’t get to the meeting – there are contact details for the Branch below.)
What is the RBL?
The Royal British Legion is the UK’s leading Armed Forces charity and one of its largest membership organisations. Members get together through the network of branches and clubs all over the country and overseas, to participate in social, fundraising and welfare activities.
About the Ruddington Branch
Ruddington & District Branch meets on the first Thursday of every month at 8pm at St Peter’s Rooms.
Who can join the RBL?
You don’t need to a serving member of the Armed Forces or a veteran to join the RBL. Membership is open to everyone. If you have an interest in the objectives of the RBL and want to help and support those who’ve served and their families, come and join us. We welcome men and women of all ages.
Why the RBL and its members matter
Legion membership makes sure that:
- Remembrance is kept alive, and the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made are never forgotten.
- The ex-Service community has a voice, and their concerns are brought to the public eye.
Becoming a member also provides the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities and events held locally, regionally and nationally throughout the year, including the annual Poppy Appeal.
