Royal Air Forces Association

Our Branch provides a network of friendship, help and support to its members.

We have been attempting to improve our relationships with local Air Cadet Squadrons.  The generation gap remains a problem, but we aim to support them as and when we can: click here for more information on Air Cadets.

Spiritual Needs

We have close links to St Barnabas Parish Church, Morecambe where we assemble for Armed Forces Day and Battle of Britain Day Services each year and where we have opportunities for social events in the parish hall. The parish priest is also Chaplain of our branch and Padre to the local Air Cadet 455 Squadron. He takes care of our spiritual needs, including supporting bereavement and honouring our past members - Contact Us.

Welfare

Currently we don't have a Welfare Officer, and to compensate our area has been divided into clusters for which a Branch member has volunteered to be a contact for members within their cluster area. If you want to participate in this scheme of being able to be in touch with a Contact Member locally please contact us. On the other hand you may require more professional help, then to find out more please click here: RAFA Advice and Support

Please do pass the address of this website on to many others, including members of your family.
