Groups for armed forces personnel and veterans

The Armed Forces and Veterans Breakfast Club

Shropshire is home to four breakfast clubs, one in Shrewsbury, one in Oswestry and two in Telford.

They're groups of HM Forces veterans and serving members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces, and, like other breakfast clubs around the country and overseas, their ethos is mutual support. It works because everyone has a similar sense of humour and outlook, and the social life they now enjoy resembles their service days. There are no subs or fees to pay to join the clubs - you only pay for your own breakfast.

The Shrewsbury Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Club was launched in 2016 and meet to eat breakfast together, served with a healthy portion of military banter, twice a month. As well as breakfast meetings the Shrewsbury club holds quiz nights and other social events throughout the year. The club has a very friendly atmosphere and family members are welcomed too.

We ask potential members to Shrewsbury AFVBC to email us at gen@shrewsburyafvbc.co.uk or via their website.

All the clubs can also be contacted via their Facebook groups
