Due to the retirement of our parade marshall, the Melbourn and Meldreth branch of the Royal British Legion will no longer be marching to the church and war memorial.

We will however still assemble at the war memorial in Melbourn in the usual manner where standards will be paraded and wreaths and tributes will be laid.

The decision not to march was made by all who attended our last branch meeting.

Please note that our new poppy appeal organiser for the 2009 appeal will be Steve Fuller, who can be contacted regarding the appeal on 01763 264190.
