County Conference 2013

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."
