We Will Remember Them
The Adderbury & Milton Branch of The Royal British Legion will be holding a Remembrance Service as part of the normal family service in St. Mary’s Church on Sunday 11 November at 10.30 am.  This may well be the last time that we are able to display our Standard and we would like to extend a warm welcome to all ex-service personnel and to the public also to all the village and Organisations, including Scouts, Guides Etc. Please support the occasion of the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice.

Our RBL AGM will be held on Thursday November 15th at 2.00 pm at the Adderbury Bowls Club.  We would welcome any ex-service Personal or otherwise to come along and join us. Come and see who we are and what we do. All welcome.

Could we also appeal for more collectors for the Poppy Appeal this year? We would particularly like more collectors for the new estates along the Milton Road and St. Marys Road. any replies to me please at jeaniemoore3@gmail.com or 0195 810246.

The Adderbury and Milton Branch of the Royal British Legion has been in existence for 95 years and we would dearly love to make our centenary!

On 17 May the Adderbury and Milton Branch of The Royal British Legion organised a coach trip to the National Memorial Arboretum together with some members of the Adderbury Evergreens.
This Proved to be a most educational experience, starting by attending a Service in the Memorial Chapel with the Last Post and Reveille sounded, followed by a short history on the site formation.
Then most members took the opportunity to take the 50 minute ride with commentary on the Land Train around the Memorial site, then take the short walk up to the Main Memorial where all the names of those killed after the second World War 2. are listed. Followed by a visit to any particular memorial on the site they wanted to see. Then lunch in the restaurant before leaving for Adderbury and home.

Appeal on behalf of the Royal British Legion, Adderbury andMilton Branch.
Our branch has been in existence since 1922 so this is our 95th year.
I would like to appeal, on behalf of the Branch, for more new members.
Our numbers are very low and we do not seem to be attracting any new interest.
We are currently meeting bi-monthly and we meet at the Bowls Club on a Thursday at 1400.
We really do wish that we can make our centenary.
We sometimes have trips out to interesting places. Our
last one was to the National Arboretum. We have a summer lunch and our Christmas
meeting takes the form of a special lunch too. All are welcome to attend our regular
meetings, so why not come along and see who we are and what we do! The meeting
dates are in the Contact diary pages and on the Adderbury website.
We really do hope this long lived branch can keep going. Our appeal doesn’t just apply
to ex-service personnel, all are welcome.
