The Armed Forces and Veterans Breakfast Club

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

They're groups of veterans and serving members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces, and like other veterans' breakfast clubs around the country and overseas their ethos is mutual support. It works because they all have a similar sense of humour and outlook, and the social life they now enjoy resembles their service days.

The Shrewsbury Veterans Breakfast Club meet and eat breakfast together at the Toby Carvery at Bicton in Shrewsbury. We ask potential members to email us at or via our website at www.shrewsbury  The Oswestry club meet and eat breakfast at Derwen College.  

More details about the clubs can be found on the Armed Forces and Veterans website, or you can search for the clubs via their Facebook pages.
