Reprieve!……for The Curry Rivel, Drayton & Fivehead Branch RBL.
Our community may or not be aware that the Branch recently went into temporary abeyance pending a new Chairman coming forward.
Since then Mick Brett of The Old Bakery, Fivehead, has stepped forward to take up the role and is now Acting Chairman until he can be formerly voted into the post. Mick remains as the Branch Standard Bearer.
The Branch is actively seeking new members. You do not have to have a connection to the Armed Forces to join the RBL. If you would like to join your local branch you can do so on line via the Royal British Legion website or contact Mick Brett at The Old Bakery, Fivehead on 01460 281115 or email email@example.com. Or the Membership Secretary, Bob Willis, email firstname.lastname@example.org Membership starts from £17 per year.
The Branch is still seeking a new Secretary and other members to join the Committee to become involved with helping with the Branch’s fundraising events throughout the year.
This year’s Poppy Appeal was very successful and Mick Brett, along with two other Standard Bearers from Somerset had the honour of parading our Branch Standards during the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at The Royal Albert Hall this year. These events will be covered in the next Branch newsletter.
