Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion, Women's Section

The Royal British Legion safeguards the welfare, interests and memory of those who are serving or who have served in the Armed Forces. We are one of the UK’s largest membership organisations and recognised as custodians of Remembrance. We also run the annual Poppy Appeal.

The Legion is one of the UK's largest membership groups and we welcome men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not. There are over 2000 branches including overseas branches offering participation in social and welfare activities.

The Barcombe section of the Royal British Legion was founded on the 6th May, 1941. Meetings are held monthly in the Village Hall, with the date varying month-by-month. From January to March we meet on Saturday mornings, then May to October meetings are on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Guest speakers cover a range of topics through the year.
