Jackie looks to open a branch

A WHITLEY Bay woman is hoping to drum up enough interest to open a local branch of The Royal British Legion Women’s Section.

Jackie Hawdon is hoping the branch will be able to meet for fundraising and social events including bingo, quizzes and afternoon tea.

Membership is open to all women over the age of 16 and is not limited to ex-service personnel or their families.

Mrs Hawdon will be at the Promenade Club at 45 North Parade on Saturday and Sunday (March 26 and 27) between 1pm and 3pm to chat about the Royal British Legion.

For more information call her on (0191) 253 1691 or 07412 108211.
