Royal British Legion Club to be sold

May 29 2018

THE former Royal British Legion Club in Staple Hill will "shortly" come on to the property market.

The building in Kendall Road will be marketed by property consultants Alder King, which is also managing the sale of a former British Legion Club in Westbury-on-Trym.

A further club in Long Ashton sold for in excess of its £550,000 guide price in April, with Alder King's website stating: "The property is one of three former Royal British Legion Clubs being sold by Alder King, with another in Westbury-on-Trym already on the market, and a 0.2 acre site in Staple Hill due to come to the market shortly."

A spokeswoman for the Royal British Legion previously told Downend Voice that proceeds from the sale will be used to go back into supporting the armed forces community in and around the local area.

The Staple Hill club has played an important role in bringing people together by hosting events and enabling clubs to use the premises. Its members raised thousands of pounds for the Legion's annual Poppy Appeal.

The club shut down suddenly in December 2016, although the exact reason for its closure remains unknown.
