The Royal British Legion

Loddon with Haddiscoe branch.

Tidings, October 2019

September’s Outdoor Bowls Tournament was a big success, with the rain holding off and sixteen entrants enjoying a good afternoon’s bowling. The worthy winner was Jim Deuchars from Loddon, with Rita Winterton an equally worthy runner up.

Grateful thanks to everybody who made it happen, and especially to the Swan Bowls Club, not only for the generous use of their facilities for the event, but also for providing very welcome tea and cakes afterwards. A total of £76.50 was raised for branch funds.

November is Remembrance-tide and the Legion’s annual Poppy Appeal. Next month we shall give the dates and timings of Poppy stalls and all events leading up to Remembrance Sunday, 10 November 2020 and our war memorial commemoration on Monday, 11 November.

Monthly branch meetings will be held on Tuesday 15 October and this year’s AGM on Tuesday 19 November, as usual at the King’s Head in Loddon, starting at 7.30 pm. For further details and general Legion advice please phone our branch secretary Colin Hartley on 01508- 521136.
