The Branch is a national branch of the Royal British Legion, covering the whole of the UK and in fact the world. We support and promote the work of the Royal British Legion as it supports the serving and ex-serving members of the British Armed Forces. We are brought together by our enthusiasm for motorcycling, and our willingness to support the aims and charitable efforts of The Royal British Legion. Branch members have the option to belong to more than one branch if they wish, allowing them to remain members of their local Legion Branch/Club as well as the Riders, which is a National Branch.
RBLR NATIONAL RALLY 2022 NOW ANNOUNCED
Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 the National Rally 2020 has had to be postponed. The new dates are 1st to 3rd July 2022. All information remains the same except for the date. Tickets will roll over. The venue remains unchanged. For those members who have already bought 2020/2021 tickets, thank you very much for your support. If you are able to attend on the new date next year, your tickets will still be valid. A full refund is available for any member who needs it – contact the organisers and they will get it sorted.
The final amount will be much more than the £10,000 mentioned in the video. (Thanks to RBLR member Chris Chapman for the video)
MEMORIAL RIDE 2021
Due to the restrictions placed upon us by the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 Memorial Ride was again virtual.
At 1400 on Saturday the 8th May we invited you to take part by watching a specially prepared video commemorating and remembering our Branch Brothers and Sisters who were taken from us since our last Memorial in May 2020.
As with all areas of the community, fundraising and other branch activities have been badly affected by the Covid-19 restrictions. Virtually every rally cancelled, ride outs severely restricted and local branch activities virtually stopped completely. Our ability to do what we were created for is basically curtailed, and as a Branch of a national organisation we have to follow the national lead and government instructions. Hopefully later this year will be better, and we will be able to get back into the swing of things in the Spring, hopefully.
