Legion's Legends

Home » News » Legion's Legends

You may have seen publicity about this new group which started on 11th February and is to meet on the second Thursday of each month from 2pm to 3.30pm at the British Legion Club in Anstey Park. It is aimed at retired army, navy or airforce personnel or people who have an interest in the armed forces. The main target is people with dementia. However, no-one will be turned away. Carers are requested to stay, but it is hoped that they will be able to relax with fellow carers. The next meeting is on Thursday 10th March.

Sarah Gardner writes,
"In April a gentleman is coming from the Green Rifles Museum to talk about his kitbag and it is hoped shortly to also have a speaker from the Legion.
If anyone would like to bring any memorabilia we would love for them to share it with the group. We hope to offer a chance for people to socialise and share experiences in a safe and supportive environment.
If anyone wishes to come along but requires transport please let me know as we are hoping to be able to provide some at a small charge. There will be no charge for attending and refreshments will be available for a small cost."

There is no need to book, but if you would like further information, please contact Sarah Gardner on 07827 317650 or Pat Murrell from the British Legion on 07771 790228.

'We don't know how to...
