2020 was a washout for recruiting. the previous year we had added more Members than in previoius years simply because we met more people face to face. That was because of our attendance at fêtes and festivals around our District. In 2020 of course, we were unable to do that because of the dreaded Covid-19 pandemic.

In 2019 we abandoned the poster idea and created banners to describe "Where the money goes", as part of our new push for new recruits through our attending local Fêtes and Festivals around our District...


We started our 1918 Recruiting Campaign in May, with the poster shown below...

AND REMEMBER: There IS such a thing as a free lunch!

If a Member recruits a new Member, we'll buy you a lunch at one of our "social gatherings"... Steak & A Pint

Please come and join us, we need YOUR support.

YOUR ONLY COMMITMENT is your annual subscription, (currently thirty three pence a week), which, apart from supporting a really good cause, gets you a quarterly magazine telling you what's happening in the RBL around the country. BUT that also allows you to attend our meetings, events and trips out whenever you wish, visit RBL Branches anywhere, and join-in our fund raising activities.

AND REMEMBER, all are welcome, men and women are Members of our Branch and there's no age restriction; also you do not have to have been in the Services to join the Royal British Legion...

To Join please use the following digital link (or contact one of us)

We also welcome youngsters between the ages of 12-18 for free i.e., there's no annual fee to pay! All we need for you to join us is a completed application form and a letter from your parent or guardian agreeing to you becoming an RBL Youth Member. See:
