Romford Branch

Club information



Romford Branch held a successful VJ Bazaar in aid of the Poppy Appeal, netting a total of £307.

The event was opened by the Mayor Brian Eagling after a short Service conducted by Fr Chris Morgan.  The Mayoress Mrs Bunny Eagling read the names of the local people lost in Thailand, Burma and Singapore. 

The Union Flag plus Standards from Chingford and Ilford Branches were lowered during the Silence.  Supporters were delighted that VJ Veteran (Stormin’) Norman Roache was able to attend.

The sideshows included a bouncy castle, human fruit-machine, tombola, cakes and quiches, lucky railway stations, decorated sweets, hoopla,
bowling for a fiver, find-the-key and a raffle. 





Monday to Friday 11 am to 11pm

Saturday 11am to Midnight (last orders 11.45!)

Sunday Noon until 11pm





 £64 per month (includes Membership so you can enjoy the Club)

This website is maintained by the Branch at Romford and we want to hear from you!  Do you have any questions?  Want to make a comment?  Your feedback would be valued!

The Club (which we all enjoy!) is operated by the Club Committee, separate from the Branch.

Members and their Guests enjoy entertainment every Friday, Saturday and Monday evening. See the details below!

Apart from being a well presented and friendly environment in which to meet other Legion Members, the Club is home to a number of interesting organisations.

Coming to see us? This link should help you find us and plan your journey.  We look forward to seeing you!

Part of the Branch is the Women's Section which meets regularly and raises money for the Poppy Appeal.  This relaxed gathering of like-minded ladies can always find room for new Members! 

At Romford, we are fortunate indeed to have The Royal British Legion Band and Corps of Drums. This fine organisation nurtures musical talent and encourages youngsters to achieve great things. 

A visit to their website really is truly worthwhile but of course, nowhere near as good as hearing the Band play!

Many Legion Members in Romford have a naval background and so the Royal Naval Association has a very strong presence here. There are good-natured meetings on the first and third Thursday of each month. Despite the banter, the RNA never loses sight of the importance of Remembrance and if it were not for the RNA, the annual Poppy Appeal at Romford would be sorely depleted. 

The Royal Naval Association at Romford continues to enjoy a strong Membership and recruits new people all the time.  Salty old seadogs who have seen active service are of course most welcome however, the Association does also accept Landlubbers that have never been afloat, provided they have the right mindset and can enjoy good-natured, naval-focussed fun.

The big activity for the Association is the annual Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Shipmates play a significant part in the success of the Appeal each year; Romford RNA is rightly proud of its wholehearted support of this noble cause.

If you feel you would like to be "piped aboard" then please do feel free to call the Secretary, Derek Brown for an informal chat on 01708 767978 or send an email to
