CHARITABLE ADVERTISING on Web Site There are many worthwhile charitable causes in existence, but we can only accept sponsorship or fundraising efforts on Fusilier Association websites, that specifically support approved Fusilier charities. This essentially means that it is acceptable to use these pages to seek sponsorship for The Fusiliers Aid Society (which includes Fallen Fusiliers), and The Fusilier Memorial fund only. We now have our own dedicated justgiving site (http://www.justgiving.com/fusiliersaidsociety), which you can use to help raise money for your cause. If you let RHQ (Asst Regt Sec) know the specific cause you are raising money for, it will be directed to the correct fund. Messages soliciting sponsorship for causes or charities other than the Fusilier ones mentioned above should not be placed on the message board and may be removed by the Webmaster.

Castle Armoury Bury
IP: 5.81.228.119


There are allsorts of rumours and Petitions going on about the Castle Armoury (Drill Hall) Bury on social media

This is what our RHQ Bury have put out


The back ground to the story is that it is proposed to expand the existing Fusilier Platoon (30) to a company (100). This would be in addition to 207 Field Hospital, the Fusilier Recruiting Team, the Bury Detachment of the Army Cadet Force, Bury Detachment of the Air Training Corps and the Fusilier Band and Corps of Drums. This would put considerable strain on the limited resources in the Castle Armoury. Also, due to reductions in maintenance budgets from the centre, the Reserves Forces and Cadet Association in the North West do not have the funds to enhance the Drill Hall. They struggle with minor repairs.



Therefore, as is their duty, the Trustees of the Castle Armoury are carrying out a study with the intention of producing 21st Century facilities for a 21st Century Army Reserve. What was relevant for the Rifle Volunteers in the 1860s, the Territorial Forces at the turn of the 20th Century and the Territorial Army in the 1950s may not be relevant today. Consequently the Trustees will be looking at the problem with a clean sheet.

Col Mike Glove is only to happy to speak to anyone about your concerns he is one of the Trustees

and this is part of what Bury Council Say

It is a long document so I thought that I would summarise. The site sits in a Conservation Area. The Castle Armoury is a Grade 2 Listed Building and sits on a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Bury Council are anxious to make the most of this historic area which has the potential to add a great deal to the appeal of Bury as a whole. As a Regiment the Museum Project has already done much to improve the environment in the “Cultural Quarter” of Bury and we have a long track record of working closely with BMBC. This project, if it proceeds, could be of great benefit to the proposed Fusilier Company and the people of Bury
