Latest News & Events

Hi, my name is Rodney Alexander Palfreyman. I am a committee member of the Royal British Legion at Bideford North Devon Branch.

My job title on the committee is 'the events organising manager' which i enjoy doing. So far this year I have tried to organise an inter-branch darts tournament and day trips out for members to Bovington Tank Museum, Beaulieu Motor Museum, Yeovilton Air Show and our first day out this year is to Longleat House and grounds.

I enjoy all aspects  of my work and the work that the British Legion do, and am proud and privileged to play my part with in the Legion.

Any member that would like to contact me can do by dropping me an email at or by calling me on 0771 3890 870. I will wecome any ideas for trips the members would like me to look at then I can report to the committee.

I would like to say before I finish to all members in all the branches, keep up the good work!
