THE Towcester branch of the Royal British Legion will formally come into existence next month.
After an absence of nearly 30 years it was hoped the town would be able to form a sub-group of the Greens Norton branch.
But at a meeting on Tuesday, September 6, enough people came forward for the town to have its own group. RBL county chairman Bill Rose was present at the meeting to take away documentation which will be rubber stamped at the next monthly meeting of the RBL’s national membership committee. Lt Col Mike Casement-Jones was appointed chairman, David Reed secretary, and Sharon Walsh treasurer.
The new standard was dedicated during South Northants Council’s civic service at St Lawrence Church last Sunday.
