On November 7 an article appeared in your paper regarding the closure of the Farnworth and Kearsley Branch of The Royal British Legion.

This Branch also covered Little Lever, Great Lever, and surrounding areas.

After talking to a few of our members Mr Alan Wright (former chairman) and myself Mrs Joyce Watt (former secretary) have decided to try and get the branch up and running again.

I am asking that anyone who is interested in becoming a member of the branch (whether past members or new members) contact either Mr Wright on 07855 822431 or myself on 07804 235810.

We need at least 15-20 members to be able to start up the branch. So if you are interested please contact us as soon as possible.
