The Wrangle and District Branch, which meets on the second Sunday in the month in The Angel Inn, would like more members to join. You don't have to have been a member of the Services.

The Branch feels a special link with the local regiment, the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Anglian Regiment, “The Lincolnshire Poachers”.

In connection with its annual Poppy Appeal, the Wrangle and District Branch promotes donations through collections by local schools and businesses by making awards for their efforts. This year it presented certificates of appreciation to The Giles School (pictured) and Wrangle Primary School

In the ongoing Shoe Box Campaign, the Branch is appealing for support for the troops in Iraq in the form of donations of non-perishable items that are often not available to them in their service area—shower gel, hand gel (the type not needing water), packets of deodorant wipes, sweets, chewing gum, toothpaste etc. Nothing, however, in pressurized containers or aerosol cans. Donors are asked to hand them either to the Branch Secretary or to Tony and Chris Wright at Palmeira, Main Road, Wrangle (Tel.: 01205 870444).

The Tuesday Luncheon Club

The Luncheon Club is held in Wrangle Parish Hall on the last Tuesday of each month at 11.45am for 12 noon—with  the exception of January, August and December. The December meeting is usually held on the second Tuesday and takes the form of a Christmas party with full Christmas dinner, wine and entertainment.

The regular meal usually consists of soup and a roll, followed by main course, sweet, then tea or coffee. Special dietary requirements are catered for. The food is prepared and cooked in the kitchen with a limit of 72 people dining in the hall.

The club is run by a small band of volunteers and has been in existence for 4 years now.
