2017 POPPY APPEAL LAUNCH

The Launch of our 2017 Poppy Appeal was a great success with even more collected in our buckets this year. Once again the local community were amazingly generous.

A big thank you to all who contributed to this brilliant total and to Mark Prisk MP, Mayor Cllr. Colin Woodward, our War Veterans, members of the Armed Forces past and present, the Sea, Army and RAF Cadets, and Royal British Legion Branch and Women's Section members together with our Standard Bearer, for attending on this special day.

 

September 2017 - The Old Contemptibles Standard Project

The newly conserved Old Contemptibles' Standard is now on display at the Bishop's Stortford Museum, Rhodes Art Complex, 1-3 South Road, Bishop's Stortford, CM23 3JG (telephone 01279 710200). We would like to thank everyone involved in this project, particularly the Heritage Lottery Fund, St. Michael's Church, Chris Lydamore and the Trustees of the Bishop's Stortford Museum, and The Royal British Legion Bishop's Stortford Branch. More information about the project is available at the Bishop's Stortford Tourist Information Centre, Market Square, Bishop's Stortford.

CALLING D-DAY VETERANS - FREE TRIPS TO NORMANDY

The Royal British Legion's travel arm, Remembrance Travel, is on a mission to find all surviving D-Day veterans and help them return to Normandy and pay their respects to their fallen comrades, free of charge. Funded by HM Treasury from Libor bank fines, the six day tours - running May, September and November 2017 - will give Normandy suvivors the chance to visit the beaches 73 years after the landings. There is no database on Normandy Veterans so they are relying on the public, whether that be a grandchild, neighbour or carer to spread the word, so that these free trips can be offered to D-Day survivors. The tours will take the form of a Journey of Remembrance and funding will be available for a Normandy veteran, and two carers/ family members (3 travellers max in total).Please apply via Remembrance Travel Tour Operator Arena Travel on 01473 660800 or visit www.arenatravel.com/our-holidays/remembrance-travel.
