Oxon – Abingdon Poppy Launch
Oct 26 @ 09:00 – 15:00

Once again we have been asked to support the Abingdon Poppy launch on 26th October.

This year they are going to have the big poppy rowed down the river (followed by other boats) by the sea cadets.

They would like it to be collected by a Biker and ridden around the outskirts of the town before being paraded into the market place by the army and sea cadets.

I am looking for volunteers for this event.

Oxon – Oxford Poppy Day
Nov 3 @ 09:45 – 17:00

RV at Botley McDonalds for 10:00 Stands up at 10:15

This year we will be assisting Oxford County by providing a couple of Bikes and a number of bodies in Lieden Square in the Westgate (Accessed Via Norfolk Street)

Jess,  our CFR, has managed to get this space, for the second year running, from the Westgate Centre who have a Policy of NO Charities. Well done to Jess.

Bikes will need to be in place at 10:45 and NO further movement until 17:00 when the centre closes.  I am trying to investigate pushing bikes in and out to allow members to arrive later / leave early on a shift system.

For those who just wish to help out, Westgate Parking is free for motorcycles.

The Anniversary of:-

Royal British Legion RIDERS Branch Inaugural Meeting At Cheltenham Branch, St. Anne’s Road Cheltenham, Glos. on 27th November 2004

In July 2004 a meeting took place at The Royal British Legion Village to discuss the possibility of an ex-services motorcycle club becoming an official branch of the RBL.

Circumstances took over and this idea was discarded but not forgotten. In late August, Paul Pollard and Graham Barber decided to resurrect the idea and approached some of those who were at the first meeting. The Legion was contacted again with a clear way ahead and an informal meeting was set up in November at RBL Cheltenham where the 14 original members met to discuss how to proceed and to form a committee, 12 volunteered for the first Riders Committee. It was at this meeting that we formally decided on our name and an adapted set of Branch Byelaws. At the end of this informal meeting, the official inaugural meeting took place and ‘The Riders’ were officially formed.

The Anniversary of:-

Royal British Legion RIDERS Branch Inaugural Meeting At Cheltenham Branch, St. Anne’s Road Cheltenham, Glos. on 27th November 2004

In July 2004 a meeting took place at The Royal British Legion Village to discuss the possibility of an ex-services motorcycle club becoming an official branch of the RBL.

Circumstances took over and this idea was discarded but not forgotten. In late August, Paul Pollard and Graham Barber decided to resurrect the idea and approached some of those who were at the first meeting. The Legion was contacted again with a clear way ahead and an informal meeting was set up in November at RBL Cheltenham where the 14 original members met to discuss how to proceed and to form a committee, 12 volunteered for the first Riders Committee. It was at this meeting that we formally decided on our name and an adapted set of Branch Byelaws. At the end of this informal meeting, the official inaugural meeting took place and ‘The Riders’ were officially formed.
