Richard Lindsay from the Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Club tells us:

“The AFVBC is part of the national organistion which has over 300 branches worldwide and is open to Veterans, current serving personnel and families of ex-forces personnel. The Gainsborough Branch was formed 5 years ago and has gone from strength to strength, we have over 100 members on the FB group and regularly get over 30 personnel at meetings.

We are due to restart on May 23rd 2021 at The Venue at Roses, North Warren Rd, Gainsborough, DN21 2TU. From 0930 - 1130, we then meet every 2 weeks.”

If you fancy a bit of banter with likeminded people come along and join in! There is no membership or entrance fee and teas and coffees are free. Venue breakfasts can be ordered price £6.99. Member’s children are also welcome and the AFVBC also has trained councillors who can offer support if needed.
