Hoycolours, supplied by Buffaloes. The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes has lodges all over the world and has been going since the 1820’s.

The Canvey membership are a group, who, by their works, encourage members of the community to lead satisfying and enjoyable lives and who provide our members with a sense of belonging. The R.A.O.B at all levels supports its community and, through its charitable works, raises many millions of pounds for most worthwhile causes, far too many to list, all chosen by the membership locally, regionally or nationally.

Some of the members of the Ye Ode Hoy Lodge No 5750 have connections with the Army Cadet Force through grandchildren being involved. A new standard was needed and the lodge decided to donate the funds needed.

The picture was taken Tuesday evening at the meeting of the Ye Ode Hoy Lodge No 5750 of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes who presented a new Standard to the Army Cadet Force Canvey Island.
