The Royal British Legion in Long Ashton is still very much alive.
We may well have closed the Club, at the end of the lease, but the BRANCH has been operating in the Village for more than 80 years, and now has met at the Village Hall (The Long Ashton Community Centre) for the last year or more.
The Flagpole from the Providence Lane site has been moved to the top of the car park, opposite the old Northleaze School, and the Garden of Remembrance has been re-located to the Cemetery.
The POPPY APPEAL for the Long Ashton District collected over £7000, and we thank all those who donated, and especially those who gave up their time to collect.
We had a good turnout for Remembrance Sunday Parade, and the weather was kind to the Marchers, who cover over three miles with the return leg.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Every pound you raise helps the Royal British Legion support wounded, injured and sick service men and women from all three services. It also supports their families.
Funded by the Legion, The Battle Back Centre provides sports and adventurous activities for wounded, injured and sick Service men and women from all three Services.
All activities promote self-confidence and improve motivation to aid recovery and tailored programmes help with both physical and psychological challenges.
The Centre exists to help people achieve their best possible recovery and either return to Service duty or make a smooth transition to civilian life.
Our Services Secretary regularly keeps in contact with Veterans and their families in the District, and helps out when he can, in cases when assistance is needed.
His visits are much appreciated.
