Biggin Hill Breakfast Club Next meeting 21th JUNE 9.30am
Alfie Davidson, ex Royal Signals, serving member of Her Majesty's Forces, asked me if we could have a Veteran's Breakfast Club at the spitfire cafe.
They are all over the country and worldwide but as yet not in Biggin Hill.
We both looked in to it and thought it would be an excellent idea.
So once a mouth on the Tuesday24th May 9.30am
We thought it would be good if ex-service members could wear their badges so we could identify them from civilian's they can sit together and banter.
