Welcome to the Retford & District Branch of The Royal British Legion
The Retford and District Branch was first established more than 35 years ago. The exact year of its establishment is not known. Current membership stands at 130.
The Poppy Appeal organiser initiated school visits to talk about the work of the Legion, 10 years ago.
In 2013, 38 schools welcomed these visits. A Retford Secondary School has hosted a poppy event in October every year for the last 4 years.
