The Royal British
Compton, Ilsleys and
This local branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL) is delighted to have been
asked to join the Hampstead Norreys Partnership as an associate charity. The RBL’s mission is to support
ex-servicemen and their families. In Berkshire each financial year, the RBL distributes such support to the value
of more than one million pounds to welfare cases.
The success of the Poppy Appeal in the autumn of each year, which is how this
support is made possible, depends on keeping the Legion’s mission in the public eye through its network of local
branches such as ours. We organise an annual Remembrance Day service and parade in one of our catchment villages,
on a rotational basis, to further this cause. We also appear at a village fete, hold a fund raising annual lunch
and arrange outings to places of relevant interest.
We hold meetings every two months on the middle Wednesday of the month at the Swan
The Poppy Appeal Organiser (PAO) in Hampstead Norreys is Lyn Davies who can be
contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01635 201059.
Finally, our small branch is always looking for new members. Please consider
joining. You do not have to be ex-services but only supportive of the charity’s objective - that being to support
the serving and ex serving communities. The membership annual subscription is small at £15 but your joining will
help keep the Branch alive and healthy. To join, please contact the undersigned. David Norbury TD, tel 07770 326128
