On Friday I spent the morning with the country’s future at St Monic’s Primary School, on Saturday I was equally honoured to spend the morning with a lively group of men and women who have already served our country with distinction.

The Veteran’s Breakfast Club in Southampton is celebrating its first anniversary. It meets every Saturday morning between 10.00 and 12.00 at the Snack Shack Cafe in Obelisk Road in Woolston.

Colin and Tracey cook a mean breakfast and I was lucky enough to join the veterans on Saturday. I was struck by how welcoming the group is and how much I enjoyed their company.

If you are a military veteran and would like to meet some former military types, and have a good breakfast on a Saturday morning, this is the group for you.

Follow them on their Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/groups/398993503589048/?fref=ts or better still pop along on Saturday and join them.
