Support for Veterans

Our veteran coordinators David Hale and Alistair Martin are both Veterans themselves and have worked hard to identify veterans in the borough and create a warm and welcoming community for others to join. If you are a veteran, please do get in touch – we are looking to find out what activities you might enjoy or what support you may need.
