This week the Worksop Guardian proudly launches a new campaign to save the local branch of the Royal British Legion.

Recently I was shocked to the learn that the Worksop branch was down to the bare bones and their very future was under threat.

That is why we are launching this campaign, as well as announcing the Worksop RBL as our Adopted Charity for 2014.

The branch is desperately in need of new members and volunteers.

Anyone can join the Legion, it is not just for service people or ex-service people.

I recently took a walk down to the Worksop Cenotaph, and took my time to read all the names of the local people killed while serving our country during wartime. It was a moving and humbling experience.

These heroes need to be remembered, and that is one of the reasons it is so important to keep our Legion branch alive.

The fact that this year in the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War makes this even more poignant.

For more information about how you can get involved, see our story on page 10 of this week’s Guardian.
