COVID-19 – update on the Annual Conference – sent on behalf of the National Chairman

Dear Member,

Further to my recent email about the Legion’s response and planning around the Covid-19 pandemic, I wanted to provide you an update on our Annual Conference.

I am sorry to say that we have had to make the decision to cancel this year’s Annual Conference in its current form. We will be exploring other options and next steps and will keep you informed of our plans around this. We have been considering this as the Covid-19 situation has been unfolding, balancing the desire to mitigate any cost of cancellation with a timely decision.

The Government has been very clear in their advice on self-isolating and social distancing, and as per my recent email to you, we are strongly encouraging all our members to follow the advice given.

I know many of you will be disappointed by this, as am I, but we really feel it is in the best interests of our members, volunteers and employees’ health and wellbeing.

With regards to the VE Day commemorations, we will let you know when we have more information from the Government and what they are planning to do given the pandemic.

We will continue our discussions and planning for how we can support our local communities through our operations and members.  We will of course continue to keep you updated as we work through this challenging time.

Please do your best to share this information with all of your members, to help keep everyone up to date.

Best wishes,

Una Cleminson

Chairman, Board of Trustees

Oxon – “The Road to Peace is Paved with Headstones”
May 30 @ 18:30 – 21:00

“The Road to Peace is Paved with Headstones”
THE COMMONWEALTH WAR GRAVES COMMISSION

ITS HISTORY AND LEGACY

As we commemorate the many anniversaries of The Great War and The Second World War there has been much focus on remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice. This talk highlights the role played by those far sighted men and women who established an organisation, now known as the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, so that remembrance of their sacrifice will endure in perpetuity. We will look at the architectural and physical characteristics of the cemeteries and memorials as well as the underlying principles that govern their design.

In addition, we will have a brief introduction to the Commission’s presence in Oxfordshire and the surrounding area.

Dick in the last 5 years has become a ‘Champion’ and Volunteer with The Commission and delivers talks to local community groups; history associations and schools and escorts tours to the local CWGC cemetery at Botley in Oxford. Dick is delighted to spread the story of this extraordinary organisation


Deddington Branch will be hosting an Open Evening on Saturday 30 May in their Parish Church at which Mr Dick Richards of the the Commonwealth War Graves Commission will present the history of the Commission and their work maintaining some 1.4 million CWGC graves in 23,000 locations worldwide.

On the North wall, as an appropriate backdrop to his talk, will be our nine WWI battlefield grave markers – believed to be the largest group of such crosses in the UK.
Oxfordshire & Northamptonshire RBL members, families and friends are very welcome to attend.There will be no entrance fee. A cash bar for beer, wine, soft drinks, tea, coffee and light snacks will be available from 6.30pm. The presentation will start at 7.30pm and last approximately an hour (inc questions) Anyone travelling a distance looking for a meal might like to know there are several restaurants & pubs in the village.  See:  https://www.deddington.org.uk/directory/pubs-restaurants-takeaways/

Riders Branch Birthday
Nov 27 all-day

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.
