At the end of the Dinner the Presiding Member proposed toasts to the Queen and to The Royal British Legion.  He took the opportunity during his speech to launch the Branch Lunch Club, which is hoped will enhance our links with the local community.  In true Legion fashion the evening was completed by holding a raffle!
