Welcome to the Mayfield, Five Ashes and Hadlow Down Branch of The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Armed Forces charity and one of its largest membership organisations. Members get together through the network of Branches and Clubs all over the country and overseas to participate in social, fundraising and welfare activities.
The Mayfield, Five Ashes and Hadlow Down Branch meets at the Mayfield Cricket Pavillion, Wellbrook, Mayfield.
We organise three/four Branch meetings per annum, together with other fundraising activities and trips for members. Please look at the "News and events" page for details of specific dates and timings by clicking on the tab on the left of this page.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak all foreseeable meetings have been CANCELLED.
There will be no remembrance service or arranged gathering at the war memorial for 2020. Instead all members of the community in Mayfield, Five Ashes and Hadlow Down are invited to place mementos, wild flower and other wreaths, flags, children’s and other artwork in the area surrounding the War Memorial and on the new surrounding railings in the two week period leading up to 11th November.
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 men and women of all ages, whether they have served in the Armed Forces or not. If you are interested in joining our Branch, then please contact Brian Stilwell, our membership secretary.
Legion membership ensures that
- Remembrance is kept alive and that the sacrifices our brave Service men and women have made are never forgotten.
- The ex-Service community have a voice and that their concerns are brought to the public eye.
Becoming a member also provides the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities and events held locally, regionally and nationally throughout the year.
If you wish to contact us or to report any inaccuracies or omissions on this site, please email Carole Stilwell.
About The Royal British Legion
We provide financial, social and emotional care and support to all members of the British Armed Forces - past and present and their families. The Legion is also the national Custodian of Remembrance and safeguards the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces and is best known for the annual Poppy Appeal and its emblem the red poppy.
Founded in 1921, the Legion is not just about those who fought in the two World Wars of the last century, but also about those involved in the many conflicts since 1945 and those still fighting for the freedom we enjoy today.
