The Hondón Valley Branch of The Royal British Legion celebrated their 8th Birthday with a huge cake designed as a poppy. Three of the original founding members were on hand to cut the cake, current Chairman Chris Wyatt, past Chairman Dave Stewart and Treasurer and cake baker Wendy Dengate.
The evening also included a Photographic Competition, a picture quiz, a talk on welfare when we heard that not only does the Legion spend £1.4m a week on welfare services, but our Branch had raised over 45,000€ since its inception. A fantastic amount for a small inland Branch.
Our birthday evening finished off with a slide show of photos taken over the past eight years of all the various Branch events and it was “a walk down memory lane” – amazing how different some of us look! It didn’t take too long to eat the cake either! Now the Branch is looking forward to its ninth year and gathering new members along with new memories.
If you want to support our British Forces and have a bit of fun at the same time why not come along and join us. We meet 3rd Tuesday every month 7pm at Monte Alto Restaurant, Hondón de Las Nieves.
