Neston's Royal British Legion Club Needs You!

The Club needs your support - use it or lose it!
A letter has been handed out to all rejoining members warning that the Club facilities are not being used and as consequence the club is facing closure. Although the committee has been forced to make several previous cutbacks it is still confident that with renewed support of members the future could be secured.
Club President, Terry Abel, said: "Recently the committee made the decision to totally refurbish the upstairs ballroom to encourage more use of this facility.
"The local Branch/club was once the hub of the Neston community and it would be very sad to witness it's closure and never to re-open."
Mayor of Neston, Cllr Tom Marlow said: "As a member of Neston Royal British Legion Club I was concerned to hear of the disturbing news of the pending future of the Club in our town of Neston.
"It has always been a crucial part of our community, providing a suitable environment for ex-service men and women to meet and socialise, and to raise funds for the benefit of those ex-service personnel and their families.
"The club, like many Legion clubs throughout the land, is facing increasing financial difficulties and it is up to us as members to ensure our club remains open for the present and future ex-servicemen and women.
"If you are not a member already, then you too can help by becoming one. It costs just £18 per year.
"I, for one, would be deeply saddened to see our Legion close."
