Armed Forces Breakfast Club

 Union flag graphic with outline of a soldier image. Armed Forces Breakfast Club.

The breakfast club aims to bring members of the Armed Forces together and is open to any active or ex-members of the armed forces, including veterans and any family members connected to the forces.

The club is a great chance to meet up with others for a chat over a cuppa or breakfast. There will also be information on the services available to military members in the borough of Gedling. 

The club takes place from 9.30 - 11.30am on the third Saturday of each month at The Richard Herrod Centre in Carlton.

It's free entry and there is no need to book. There will be bacon, sausage and vegetarian cobs available to buy from local business, Inn The Bank, as well as tea and coffee available to buy from the Richard Herrod Centre bar.

The club is part of the council’s plan to reduce loneliness and isolation in the borough, as well as supporting the Armed Forces, as part of the council’s Armed Forces Covenant.

The council has also launched an Armed Forces Leisure Card which provides free use of the gyms in all Gedling Leisure centres.

Find out more about the Richard Herrod Centre venue at their webpage. If you would like more information about the Armed Forces Breakfast Club, please call 0115 961 2949.
