Welcome to the Ashford Branch of The Royal British Legion
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.
Ashford Branch is located at Legion House, Church Road, Ashford, Kent TN23 1RA. The office is open every Monday and Thursday (10:00 - 12:00). Do please drop in if you wish to join or just need some advice and guidance, you will be very welcome, or just a coffee and a chat. Members meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month at The Ashford Town Bowls Club, Vicarage Lane, Ashford, Kent TN23 1NJ, commencing at 19:30 hours, last just under an hour and then we all retire to the bar and socialise.
Membership is open to everyone. If you have an interest in the objectives of the Legion and want to help support those who have served and their families, come and join us. We welcome men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not.
Legion membership ensures that:
- Remembrance is kept alive and that the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made are never forgotten.
- The ex-Service community have a voice and that 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.

About The Royal British Legion
We provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces - past and present and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces and is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.
Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the two World Wars of the last century, but also about those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.
