The Royal British Legion











The Royal British Legion Nayland Branch

The Royal British Legion exists to promote the welfare of those who are serving or have served in the armed forces of the Crown and their dependants; that is, their spouse, children and perhaps other dependents.

The Nayland and District Branch meets every 2 months  in the Church Hall . It is not only open to ex-service men or women but is happy to accept associate members who have never served in the Armed Forces.  .

Its main activity is to look after its members and other ex-service men and women and their dependants and provide them with help and support as necessary.  It arranges speakers at most of its meetings and organises visits 3 or 4 times a year. It organises the annual Remembrance Services at Nayland and Wiston Churches and the Annual Poppy Appeal Collections. It  conducts  fund raising events for funding its local activities and for the national organisation. Its welfare officer has access to the national organization support agencies, such as Residential Homes and the more expensive home equipment aids that might be required by ailing ex-service personnel or their dependants.
