Retford and District Royal British Legion

by | 18 February 2020 | Community Event, Gainsborough, Local Charity, Notice, Retford

The local branch of The Royal British Legion, are planning a fun quiz night at Babworth Road Sports and Social Club, Retford, on Friday 16th March. A similar event was held last year and was very popular. The event will start at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start. There is a bar at the club and nibbles will be provided. The cost to enter is £3.00 per person and you can enter as a team of up to six people or enter as an individual and join a team on the night. For more information, or to book for the event, please call Judith Goodall on 01777 707152.

The Poppy Appeal has exceeded all expectations with a massive total of £60,000. This is an incredible total for Retford and District.

The final preparation of the wall hanging to commemorate the duration of WWI is now underway. Many clubs, societies, schools, churches, youth groups and businesses have submitted their contribution, proving just how talented our local community is. When completed it will be a lasting memorial to those who fought in this devastating conflict 100 years ago. Those who have contributed will be invited to the presentation of the wall hanging to Bassetlaw Museum in October 2018.

As always if you need any information about the local branch, including membership or the help available, please contact Ann Hickman on 01777 818993.
