THE Market Lavington branch of the Royal British Legion is seeking new members to ensure its survival.
It plans to have a stall in the Market Place on September 28, for a recruitment drive.
Writing in the village magazine, branch secretary Brian Hunt said: “At our next AGM in October there will be vacancies for the following positions on the committee: branch chairman, vice chairman, branch secretary and branch treasurer.
“Myself and my wife are
not standing for re-election.
“That’s why we need new blood and hopefully a new committee, because if no-one comes forward to take on these positions then the branch will have to close or merge as there are no other avenues.”
