Breakfast club invite for ex-service personnel

A bargain breakfast and brilliant banter are on the menu at a monthly get-together for ex-service personnel.

The Middlesbrough Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Club meets at the Fork In The Road restaurant on Linthorpe Road on the first Saturday of every month – and new members are always welcome.

The club was set up by former serviceman Barry Leach.

Barry said: “It’s always great to catch up with former colleagues and comrades, and that’s certainly the case with ex-services personnel.

“The club’s a great way to keep in touch, and gives people a chance to socialise and access support should they ever need it.

“We know there are lots of veterans out there, and we’d love to see as many as possible at the next get together.”

The club is open to anyone who has served in the armed forces.

Middlesbrough Council Armed Forces Champion Councillor Ron Arundale said: “These breakfast clubs are starting up all over the country.

“It’s a great for opportunity for ex-service personnel to get together and enjoy a bit of banter while enjoying a very reasonably priced breakfast.

“We’ve already had a good turn-out locally, but it would be great to see some new faces in the future.”

The Middlesbrough Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Club takes place at The Fork In The Road on the first Saturday of the month from 10am. For more information, email Cllr Arundale at Ron_Arundale@middlesbrough.gov.uk or call 01642 288504. Full details and the latest updates can also be found on the Middlesbrough Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Club Facebook group.
