Oxney Royal British Legion

Contact: Roger King (Branch Secretary), on 01797 270 846.

Regular meetings: This have been disrupted by the covid pandemic, but formerly took place on the second Thursday of each month at the Oxney (Swan) in Wittersham at 7.30pm.

The Isle of Oxney Branch of the Royal British Legion was formed in 2009. The Isle of Oxney takes in the villages of Wittersham, Stone in Oxney and the hamlet of Ebony (Reading Street).

Our primary objective is providing comradeship, assistance and support to both the Services and ex-service community – men and women who are serving or who have served in the armed forces of the Crown.

The public are generally aware of this during the Poppy Appeal and the Remembrance period from late October to mid-November and we receive fantastic support with the majority of people who buy and wear poppies.

However, our meetings every month are also an important social gathering for like minded people and an opportunity to enjoy each other’s company away from the immediate pressures of modern life.

We have regular speakers and a meal is available, for those who wish it, at a cost of £8 every meeting. We meet every 2nd Thursday of each month at the Oxney (Swan) in Wittersham at 7.30pm.

Membership is open to everyone. If you have an interest in the objectives of the Legion and want to help and support for those who have served and their families, come and join us. We welcome people of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not.
