Veterans Drop in Centre

One of our local veterans founded the Armed Forces & Veterans Drop in Centre at

St Mary’s Longfleet Church Centre, Kingston Road, Poole BH15 2LP

Diane told us; I moved to Poole just before covid.  I am an army veteran with 14 yrs service.  I was surprised to find there was nothing for veterans in Poole.  I found a group of Christians (also veterans) and we started the first Armed forces and veterans drop in.  We meet the 1st Saturday of each month (apart from January 2022 which will be the 2nd Saturday). We have bacon/egg rolls and plenty of banter. People of all faiths and those with no faith are all welcome. I’m hoping to arrange coach trips in the future to places of interest like the Poppy factory.  We are here for all armed forces and veterans,  you are not alone!
