Members Needed:

The Backbarrow & District Branch with The Crake Valley Sub-branch of The Royal British Legion

The current membership of these branches is the lowest it has been over the last thirty five years and this concerns us greatly. The 2005 National Conference decreed that those who support the aims of the legion, whether they have served in H. M. Forces or not, may now enrol and that there should be now only the one class of membership.
The new Legion year starts on 1st October and the annual subscription is 11.00p.
Please give serious consideration to joining our ranks and so help us to continue our valuable work in the community.
For further details contact Robert Hutton on 01229 585888
