Proud of our Past. Confident of our Future.
We are based in this attractive market town at whose centre is the Parish Church  of St. Dionysius and the iconic Old Grammar School

Our members are of different age groups, many have not served in the Forces and about a third are women. We enjoy the shared interest of supporting the work of the Legion.

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.

Legion membership ensures that Nationally and locally

  • Remembrance is kept alive and that the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made are never forgotten.
  • The ex-Service community have a voice and that their concerns are brought to the public eye.
