Welcome to the Lostock Hall 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
Lostock Hall Branch was first formed in Januray 1936 and
the first President was the local Doctor ,Dr Sharples.They met in
the Tardy gate pub for many years until the early 50's.Dr
Sharples died and left the Branch a legacy which they used to
the land on which the club now stands.All the members
bought a brick and worked very hard building thier own HQ.It
was like a nissan hut but they had a bar and held concerts etc.Over
the years the building has been added to and now we have a
very nice and well run branch/club/womens section at the heart of
the community of Lostock hall.
Lostock Hall Branch meets at 8.00pm on the first
Monday every month at the Lostock Hall Royal British

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.
