THE Stratton branch of the Royal British Legion is celebrating its centenary with a family fun day today.

There will be a bouncy castle, kids' entertainer, ice cream van, fire engine, face painting and a barbecue at the clubhouse on St Philip's Road from 12pm, followed by a disco in the evening.

Stratton St Margaret's RBL was formed in an old tin hut on the green by St Margaret's Church of Ermin Street. Some years later, it moved to its current home in Upper Stratton.

The club was paid for by members paying £1 per brick and celebrates its 100th anniversary tomorrow.

Today, this will be celebrated in the club's car park.

One member said: "We would like the general public to come along and support the Royal British Legion, as the Stratton RBL is one of the only social clubs left in Swindon and maybe one of the last four in the whole county."
