MEMBERS of the Royal British Legion in Trowbridge are set to resume their meetings.

The work of the RBL, welfare visits, phone calls, fundraising and flow of advice and information never really stopped over lockdown.

But the branch was forced to suspend monthly meetings in line with government advice and guidelines.

Honorary Secretary Rick Owen said: "We are back in The Wesley Road Club, meeting at 7.30pm on Thursday, August 12 and look forward to seeing everyone there – to swop ‘lockdown’ stories, enjoy a pint together and plan our autumn campaign for the Remembrance season and all that brings with it, so please come along if you would like to be part of the thriving ex-service community in Trowbridge.

"We welcome everyone, all our members but also those national servicemen and women who might like to renew our acquaintance and of course those who support our cause but have no military connection."
