2017 Remembrance Day Parade at Arborfield Cross
The Royal British Legion complex in Eversley Road at Arborfield, houses 3 seperate establishments:
The primary roles of the Arborfield and Barkham District Branch are to raise funds locally for the "Poppy Appeal" each year and to organise the Remembrance Day Parade, held at Arborfield Cross.
However, whilst the famous "Poppy Appeal" lasts for only a few weeks each year in the build-up to Remembrance Sunday, the work of fundraising continues throughout the year in preparation for the following year's collection. The Branch Committee work tirelessly organising several functions throughout the year, culminating in the "Poppy Dance", held each year in October to herald the launch of that year's formal "Poppy Appeal", whilst our "Poppy Appeal Organiser" arranges the provision, distribution and collection of the Poppy Appeal merchandise and containers within our District.
In addition to this, the Branch can also assist members in need with welfare visits and, where possible will assist with the provision of a representative and a Standard Bearer at a member's funeral service.
The current Branch Committee were elected at the Annual General Meeting, held at the Arborfield RBL Club, on Wednesday 22nd November 2017, and are as follows:
