Bollards, Sandbags & Wheelchocks – Calling HM Forces & Veterans...
The Thornbury Branch of the then British Legion was formed on 14th January 1922. Now called the Thornbury & District Branch of the Royal British Legion a lot has changed in the past 100 years. However, one thing that has remained constant is the primary purpose of the branch – to offer care, support and comradeship to all local veterans, members of HM Forces and their families.
With all that in mind, the regular gatherings in The Swan on the High Street will of course carry on in 2022. These offer the chance to get together for a chat and to get practical support and advice from others who have served in uniform.
The first dates are:
Friday January 21st – 6.30pm onwards – a quiet beer and a friendly ear
Saturday January 22nd – 9–11.30am – breakfast/coffee and banter with “mates”.
If you are thinking of joining the Royal British Legion (you do NOT have to have served in HM Forces), then you can find us in The Black Horse, on Gillingstool on Sunday January 30th at 12 noon. You will be welcome to join us.
