The Ramsgate branch of the Royal British Legion has been put in county administration for a second time in just months following a flurry of resignations.

Members were told the news in a email from the RBL county chairman.

The branch is now considered as ‘non-compliant’ due to the exit of the Branch secretary and treasurer.

In a letter to members it says: “An urgent meeting of (the) County Executive Board has been held and it was agreed that (Ramsgate) branch will enter County Administration with immediate effect.”

The action means Ramsgate branch officers and committee have been stood down with branch funds, documents and property to be forwarded to county officials “for safe keeping until processes can be completed for the branch to again become compliant.”

The Ramsgate RBL Club in Cliff Street remains open for business.
