Royal British Legion Wivey branch

On the 11 January 2027, we are proud to tell you that the branch will be 100 years old!

Although there are a few years to go, we would really like to reach our centenary and celebrate that year in great style and with a healthy number of members and supporters.

Both the 10 Parishes and Milverton have always been fantastic supporters of the branch and we are hoping that there are many more of you who would like to help us achieve our aim.

You do not have to be ex-forces or have had anything to do with the military. All we need is people willing to be involved in helping to raise funds for the branch to spend on various projects for our veterans and their families as well as the rest of the community.

Ideas for fundraising, Poppy sellers, raising our profile in the communities, and any other ventures, schemes or ideas you might have, would be part of how you could help.

There are also admin and general support roles available for you to help us with.

Everything is totally voluntary, with no great demands on you or your time.

If you would like to join us, simply ring 0808 8028080 ask for Membership and that you would like to join the Wiveliscombe Branch. Milverton is also allied to this branch.

We look forward to having you as a member!

Royal British Legion Wiveliscombe Branch BR2550

As the Branch has just reached its 95 Birthday on 11 January 2022, it seems a good time to give you an update on what we would like to see happen over the next five years so that we may celebrate our 100 in 2027 together with you.

The 10 parishes and Milverton have always been amazing in their support of the Legion and for that we are truly grateful and thank you!

However, we do need members and supporters who would like to get involved with the Branch, to enable us to work towards the help and support we give to the members of the Armed Forces, the Veterans, their families and also the local community.

We would like to invite you to join us, to help play a part in our future. It could be to offer physical help, to support our fund raising, even giving us ideas on how we can raise those funds needed.

To join us is simple. You do not even need to have served in the Forces to become a member. Simply ring 08088 028 080 and ask for membership to join our Wiveliscombe Branch.

If you have any questions, do please email me on stevenwort@hotmail.co.uk or phone 07557 958013.

Looking forward to having you as a member!
