North Wales Weekly News - - NEWS -

LLAN­DUDNO Royal Bri­tish Le­gion Branch is in rude health ac­cord­ing to its sec­re­tary.

In a let­ter to the Weekly News Sharon Keat­ings de­scribes re­ports of the branch’s demise as pre­ma­ture.

She also wrote to thank read­ers for their con­tri­bu­tions to this year’s Poppy Ap­peal, which has raised almost £16,200 and ris­ing.

“As your read­ers will be aware there have been re­ports in the lo­cal press lately that the Llan­dudno branch was in dan­ger of clos­ing,” she writes.

“I am pleased to be able to tell them that this is now not the case. In fact we are get­ting new mem­bers join­ing us daily.

“There is a new com­mit­tee in place who will be work­ing hard over the com­ing months to en­sure the con­tin­u­a­tion of the branch.

“The branch will con­tinue to hold reg­u­lar meet­ings and look for­ward to see­ing mem­bers, both ex­ist­ing and new ones there.”

One plan is to hold reg­u­lar cof­fee morn­ings where ex-ser­vice­men and women can speak with trained wel­fare of­fi­cers about their is­sues, in­clud­ing what ben­e­fits they are in re­ceipt of to make sure they are re­ceiv­ing the cor­rect amounts of money.

Mem­bers can pick up mem­ber­ship cards on Sun­day and Wed­nes­day evenings from the Le­gion Club on Vaughan Street or by con­tact­ing the trea­surer on: (01492) 203055

Any­one who needs fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about meet­ings, in­clud­ing dates and times, should con­tact branch sec­re­tary Sharon Keat­ings on: 01745 369811.
