Supporting our local community
Blakeney Harbour Room Community
Blakeney Cley & District Royal Legion has occupied its present site in Blakeney for nearly 100 years. Established to support services personnel in our community it’s continued to do that long into the 20th century. Today the needs of service personnel are different and there aren’t as many of them. We have devised contemporary support for our services communities around the country which can also support our local community and emergency services too.
Community Respite Breaks and Away Days
We are arranging respite breaks and away days for both Armed Services and Emergency Services personnel. This can include accommodation and activities.
Combating loneliness and isolation through Online Arts Support Programmes
Poetry provides a space to be heard and to listen to others, finding solace and kinship with one another. It requires communities and encourages often neglected conversation.
