Royal British Legion

On Saturday 15th May 2021, the Royal British Legion will be marking its centenary year and we hope you will join us in celebrating this exciting milestone.

Throughout our history, the work of the Royal British Legion has left a deep-rooted legacy for generations to come and we remain dedicated to our mission of creating better futures for all those who have served and continue to serve with the British Armed Forces.​ 

The Royal British Legion was formed in the aftermath of the First World War to fight for the rights of those who had given so much and who came back to so little. Today, we continue to stand with the Armed Forces community and challenge injustices to ensure all those who have served and sacrificed on our behalf get the fair treatment and recognition they deserve.​ 

As we reflect on our achievements over the last 100 years, we know they are not ours alone. The Royal British Legion has always been supported by an extensive network of volunteers, members, fundraisers and partner organisations who share our passion for bringing people together to support, commemorate and celebrate our Armed Forces community.​  An enormous amount of hours have been spent over many, many years with volunteers helping to collect during Remembrance and for our annual Poppy Appeal.  We would like to pay our sincere gratitude to every single person who has sold or bought a Poppy or contributed towards the Appeal over the years.  Without their support, we would not be reaching our milestone this year.

Throughout the decades, the Royal British Legion has evolved and adapted, responding to the changing needs of the Armed Forces Community and reflecting the modern-day society in which we play an important role. As we face our next chapter, we are inviting a new generation to be part of our future and continue our vital work.

For any enquiries about the Royal British Legion such as volunteering and fundraising or if anyone would like to do an activity to mark our centenary, please do get in touch with Mark Smith at msmith1@britishlegion.org.uk or call 07920 378588.

Further information regarding the availability of Lamp Post Poppies will be sent out shortly.

 Many Regards

Rushcliffe Leader calls for all to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives

Leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council Cllr Simon Robinson is calling on the public to do all they can to follow new national restrictions around COVID-19 and continue to play their part by staying at home to protect the NHS and save lives.

Measures for England outlined on Saturday by the Prime Minister come into force today (Thursday) in an attempt to reduce the number of transmissions and protect the NHS from rising hospital admissions.

Cllr Robinson said: “It’s incredibly important that everybody now complies with these new restrictions.

“I know it’s exceptionally tough on so many of us as residents and business owners but we are in a really serious situation.

“It needs everyone to continue playing their part, starting with staying at home wherever you can and remembering hands, face, space whenever you do leave home for essential reasons

“I cannot stress enough how important it is as we go forward we all follow these rules to protect each other and get on top of this virus.

“Shop Local Shop Safe at essential outlets and please do keep supporting local traders who are able to continue to operate.

“If you have any questions at all please visit our website www.rushcliffe.gov.uk – it clarifies more on staying at home, meeting others safely, the latest for our businesses and venues and possible financial support, going to work safely and childcare and children’s activities.

“There’s also information available for anyone who needs support with social isolation, mental health or anyone suffering domestic abuse, we understand the pressures so many of us can face at home.

“These measures are very much about protecting everybody in our communities with these huge sacrifices we have to make.


“I’m disappointed we’re in this again after all we did earlier this year but we are where we are and we’ve got to make that commitment and get on top of this pandemic.

“Let me absolutely stress too, a priority is to get that financial support into eligible business bank accounts as soon as possible.

“So as soon as we’ve received the final guidance from government on the business grants packages, we’ll publish the details and then we’ll contact businesses to make sure we can get that vital money out to them.

“Stay safe, continue to look after one another and please follow the rules so we can look forward to a brighter Christmas and 2021.”
