The Midhurst and District branch of the Royal British Legion (RBL) will be dedicating a new standard at Midhurst Parish Church on Saturday, May 18, at 2pm.

Midhurst and District Branch President Colonel Michael Mates, said: “The Royal British Legion helps members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, Reservists, veterans and their families.

"We support serving and ex-serving personnel all year round, every day of the week. Our support starts after one day of service and continues through life, long after service is over.

"We can only do this by our local community’s support to the RBL through the Poppy Appeal in particular. This dedication ceremony reaffirms the commitment of the local branch members and volunteers to this noble cause.”
