We have three experienced members, two of whom can undertake duties, as locally based Standard Bearers, convenient to Newbury - Mike Payne and Mick Nottage as well as Jack Crompton who is midlands based. However, we shall still require further volunteers in order to undertake more widespread functions such as representative memorial services and requests from families at funerals.
If you are interested in registering for these duties, please contact the Hon Secretary or speak to the Branch Chairman, directly, during the next AGM.
