Hertfordshire folk urged to celebrate as Royal British Legion marks 90th anniversary

THE Royal British Legion marks its 90th anniversary this year, and Jane Pitman, chairman of Hertfordshire County Council, is encouraging residents to join in celebrations.

“Raising awareness of the continuing hard work of the Royal British Legion is extremely important, particularly in times such as these when we have servicemen and women enduring such hardship in Afghanistan and other troubled countries,” said Cllr Pitman.

“The support that the Royal British Legion provides to military personnel, both past and present, and their families is so vital and I am only too happy to show my support and that of the county council’s for the charity during its 90 year anniversary.”

Cllr Pitman will be supporting the charity at various events throughout the year, starting with the Great Poppy Party Weekend, which took place earlier this month.
