The Sedgeberrow Branch of the Royal British Legion Women's Section was established on Tuesday 28th October 1952.  

The first Chairman was Mrs M Stacey, the first Secretary was Miss J Hunt, and the first Treasurer was Miss Carter.  

The members of the Committee were Mrs Clarke, Mrs Stephens, Mrs Winnett, Mrs R Harris, Mrs Need, Mrs Hacklett and Miss Driver. 

 

 

"The Last Post"

 

 It is with sadness and disappointment that I write to say the Sedgeberrow Royal British Legion Women's Section closed on 30th September 2016. 

This decision has not come easily or without much soul searching, but as the RBL were insistent in their plans to amalgamate the women's section, albeit with a twelve month stay of execution, we are following the voice of our members nationally, which at our national conference in April, was that if the RBL were insistent then the women's section would close en masse. 
The RBLWS was founded in Sedgeberrow, representing the three villages of Sedgeberrow, Aston Somerville and Hinton in October 1952. I salute all our members, past and present for the 64 years of unfailing service to fund raising for our service and ex service men and women and their families. And for maintaining our position of Guardian of Remembrance.
I would also like to thank all of you for what has been continued support of the aims and work of the RBLWS.
Our branch Standard will be laid up at a special service in the near future. We also have a plan to recognise the work of the RBLWS in the village. Emma will continue as a member of a holding branch to honour her commitments as parade Marshall. 

They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
we will remember them.

WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

Pat Kearsey. Chairman. RBLWS. Sedgeberrow branch
