Views of Bunbury

 

The village of Bunbury lies at the western edge of the Cheshire Plain some 3 miles from Tarporley and 12 miles south east of the city of Chester. Little is known of its history prior to the Norman Conquest but it is generally accepted that the name is of Saxon origin and it is thought that there was a Christian place of worship on the site of the present parish church long before 1066. Read more about our history…

Bunbury British Legion Needs Your Help

The Bunbury branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL) needs you to do is give up a little time to support the branch in their activities. The age of many of our members is such that they need to take things a little more easy. This has left a gap in the office-holders of our Branch, some of whom are mandatory to any branch of the RBL. So the worst case scenario if we can’t fill the posts is that we may not be able to carry on as an independent branch of the RBL.

We urgently need a Poppy Appeal Co-ordinator. We are also actively trying to get volunteers to become Honorary Secretary and Vice Chairman.

I cannot stress enough the important work that the Royal British Legion do in our village, locally and nationally. Some un-recognised work is ensuring that the young in our community understand the need to remember those who gave up their lives so that we can all live in a free society. Without a local Branch, work with the young and the annual act of remembrance on Remembrance Sunday will clearly suffer.

To volunteer to help the Bunbury Branch of the Royal British Legion you do not have to be ex-military – just have a wish to help us survive and carry on serving our community.

If you would like to get involved please see more….
