Mickleover Poppyfield Ladies
Following a visit
to the Royal British Legion Women’s Section Annual National Conference. Earlier in the year.
Mrs Margaret Orme
Mrs Norah Appleby MBE
reported that the Women’s Section is due to be swallowed up by the Royal British Legion Main Branch (often referred to as the Men’s
Section) on a National Level. At their subsequent meeting the ladies of the Mickleover Branch of the Women’s Section held a vote and decided to close their section from the end of September 2016. This was very sad news as the Women’s Section has always been a very strong supporter
of both the Club and the Branch.
The Women’s Section Standard was laid up at All Saints Church on Thursday 29th September.
The Ladies Section has subsequently reformed as a section of the Club and will henceforth be known as “Mickleover Poppyfield Ladies”.
