Poppy appeal and Remembrance Day 2016
Many thanks to all the amazing people who have supported our branch over the past year. Membership is increasing, not just from Warkworth and Amble, but also from surrounding areas. The Royal British Legion will always be there for those who served in our Armed Forces and by supporting us you will make a difference to those who will need our help for many years to come.
Our Poppy Appeal launch begins mid-October until Remembrance Sunday on 13 November 2016 and we hope to make this year our best ever.
Sales from our book “Portraits of War: The Men and Women of Warkworth and Acklington District who served in World War I” continue to grow thanks to advertising on Joan Robinson’s Warkworth Website www.warkworth.co.uk.
As all proceeds from the book go to our Poppy Appeal we will be making the book widely available and our poppy collectors can take orders. Book donation is £10 with £2.99 for post and packaging. Contact June Watson on 07785 753100.
Services on Remembrance Sunday will take place as usual at St Lawrence Church on Sunday, 13 November at 9.30am and again at Amble Town Square at 10.45 am.
Poppy wreaths (standard size) can be ordered for a donation of £25. Please telephone 07785 753100.
Next Meeting: AGM Wednesday, 9 November 2016, at 7pm in Legion Room, Warkworth War Memorial Hall. Speaker: Nicola Day will give a talk on Northumberland Fusiliers Museum, Alnwick.
If you would like to become a member of The Royal British Legion our membership fee is £17 per year. Do come along as a visitor to branch meetings held every two months on a Wednesday evening at 7pm. You will be made very welcome!
