Your local RSL…

Our Sub-Branch is where it all began, a place for returned service members and family to meet and socialise with friends. This is what makes our Club who we are today and we are very proud to continue supporting that legacy so that those who have served our country in peace and in war have a place to call home. Please use the information provided to seek support, assistance and friendship.

Members Ring-Around

Due to the much longer than expected Covid lockdowns and disruptions we feel we are losing contact with so many of our members – particularly those older & less mobile.

The situation is made even worse by the fact that our new club does not look like being open until late 2023, at the earliest.

This means, unfortunately, we no longer have that club “grapevine” so-to-speak.

Whereas before, even if we didn’t actually see a member, we would very often hear from someone else if they were feeling a bit lonely or doing it a bit tough & needed help.

So, if you are travelling OK yourself how does the idea of a ring-around sound to you, where we contact & check how they are going?

Particularly with Christmas coming up your phone call could be just the difference someone else needs   (plus, what an awesome way to use up a few of those unlimited calls !!)

Now, if you’d like to be part of our “Catch-Up Crew” & help a few others then give me a call and we can have a chat, maybe get together, & throw a few ideas around how best to go about it.

Cheers

HOW THE LEAGUE EVOLVED
The Returned Sailors and Soldiers Imperial League of Australia, later to become The Returned and Services League of Australia was formally established on the 6th June 1916 by wounded and disabled serviceman who had returned from the Gallipoli campaign. They banded together to improve the ability of returned serviceman to influence the Commonwealth Government policies and decisions.
The issues which the founding fathers of the League set out to represent to Government were, firstly, to fight for benefits, treatment, and welfare of veterans, ex-service and serving members of the Defence Force, and secondly, to preserve the health, well-being, and security of Australia and the Australian way of life.
These issues continue to remain the focus of the League.
