Buxton’s newly-relaunched Royal British Legion branch is looking for new members.

Volunteers are also needed to help out at Remembrance time.

The branch, which folded last May because of dwindling membership, has recently been reformed with a new committee selected last month.

And after the former branch headquarters on Hardwick Square were closed in April 2012, the branch is close to securing a deal for new town centre premises, which as well as being the location for co-ordinating the town’s poppy appeal from, will also be open for members to drop-in for a coffee, chat or advice on a wide range of issues.

The branch is also planning to hold social events once a month, and use their new site in the town centre as a hub to raise the branch’s profile in the town.

You are not required to have served in the forces to be a member of the Royal British Legion.

Anyone who would like to become a member, or who can help out at Remembrance time, should email, or call poppy appeal organiser Allan Smith on 01298 27450.
