EAST GRINSTEAD BRANCH

East Grinstead Branch was started in March 1922. It is the oldest branch in Sussex and the fifth oldest surviving branch in the country.

As a branch we raise money at meetings with a sales-table and raffle. We decide whether our donations go to Sussex County or National funds.

We have a stall at the East Grinstead Summer Fair and join in with the local challenges.

Members help with the Armed  Forces Day celebrations, Remembrance Day Poppy selling and various events for the Armed Forces.

Meetings include a little business that keeps us up with National and County affairs and a speaker or craft/cookery demonstration.

RBL HQ, 4 STATION ROAD, EAST GRINSTEAD, RH19 1DJ
