Dear Residents of Eastoft
We have an opportunity to have our own Garthorpe & Fockerby British Legion Branch.
As you might be aware that the British Legion are one of the main supporters of all military services.
We all know that they raise money through the Poppy Appeal every November and the Queen is their patron.
Royal British Legion Clubs are closing but smaller branches are opening up in pubs,hotels and village halls and as the nearest is in Scunthorpe/Goole and we have a connection within the local Villages of people that have served and are serving it would be good to open up a Branch in Garthorpe & Fockerby that will be available to everyone In the surrounding villages and this invitation is open to all, not just the Forces.
We have a representative from the Lincoln RBL Mr T Goodwin coming to Garthorpe on Thursday 4th October at 7pm to discuss the possibilities of opening a branch and what it entails and this will be held in St Mary’s Church so please do come along if you can as this meeting is open to everyone.
I would like to mention there is no commitment or looking for committee members at this point its just a general meeting of what a RBL Branch does and the protocols and there is a process.
To date there has been some Interest and it would be good for the Village and a network for local communities, veterans and serving personnel to get together and have a social once in a while.
If you would have liked to come to the meeting but unable to please email: garthorpedistrictRBL@gmail.com
or If you do not have email facilities then please drop a note with name and address to
Mrs S Graham,2 Church Cottages,Shore Road,Garthorpe.
and will be pleased to forward the relevant information after the meeting.
I would like to thank you for taking time in reading the above.
