RBL Lunch

Tony Potter, Chairman & Secretary for the Curry Rivel, Drayton & Fivehead Branch of the Royal British Legion writes:
After the annual Service of Remembrance at the War Memorial, attended this year by many more people than in recent years, the local Branch of the Royal British Legion held a lunch in the village hall.
This was the first occasion that such an event had been held on Remembrance Sunday. Some fifty-people attended — members and non-members — for a meal of 'Trench Stew', which warmed the cockles on a cold day, followed by chocolate 'Brownies'.
Three members of the Armed Forces in uniform attended with their families, as guests of the Royal British Legion. One of them said "We are very grateful to be invited like this and I hope that this will now become an annual event in the village on Remembrance Sunday."
It is certainly the intention of the Royal British Legion to hold another lunch next year, which we hope more people will attend, both to thank those Service personnel who live amongst us, and to raise money for the charity. Just under £400 was raised on this occasion for the two Legion Homes in Bishops Lydeard and Weston.
