Veterans Café

The hugely successful weekly Veterans Café encourages veterans of all forces to come along, share their experiences and socialise with other veterans. The Veterans group also regularly takes trips out to various museums and other local sights. 

Why not come along to socialise and share your experiences with other veterans, refreshments and join your local veteran community?
