Potteries & District Branch

About our branch

The Potteries and District Branch of the R.E.M.E. Association was formed in 1991.

The Branch is an active one with links to units at Beacon Barracks in Stafford with the LAD’s of both 16 and 22 Signals Regiments.

Throughout the year the Branch is involved the following activities –

Corps Memorial Day at the National Arboretum, Armed Forces Day celebrations held locally at Longton Park, activities held at the Tri Services Centre in Newcastle Under Lyme.

Monthly lunches are held at various local venues.

Members attend, as and when requested by RHQ, to funerals of Corps veterans.

The Branch holds an annual Christmas Dinner at a local hotel.

Members support the North Staffs REME Breakfast Club which meets on the first Saturday of every month.
