Welcome to the Stamford Branch of The Royal British Legion
This year's Lincolnshire County Conference was held on the 12th
January at Queen
Elizabeth's Grammar School in Horncastle.
Other than running through nominations of the County Committee
and County Conference Committe, at each County Conference, there is
also an opportunity to recognise some of the longstanding
supporters and real hard workers from branches, without whom, the
Royal British Legion simply would not be able to run.
We're really proud to announce that Steve Bonde, a member of the
Stamford Branch, was awarded the Courtesy Cup. Steve won the cup
for his work as editor of the Legion's county newsletter, LegionLincs,
in presenting the work and achievements of the Royal British Legion
in Lincolnshire to its members, local government, media and other
readers in the county and beyond.
"The award came as a complete surprise," he said. "I felt
privileged to be allowed to give my time and any talents to the
Legion in support of their incredible work in caring for the
welfare and memory of all those who have served or are still
serving in Her Majesty's Armed Forces. The Courtesy Cup is awarded
to those who make a special contribution to that cause; I feel
humbled now to be included among those people."

The Conference also included a presentation from a brave
guest speaker, Sue Freeth, Director of Operations at The Royal
British Legion, who spoke to members about the future of the Legion
and its continued mission to drive its cause.
