A monthly breakfast club for military veterans has been launched at the Liss Royal British Legion.

English breakfasts are now being served by volunteers every second Wednesday in the month at the Rake Road club for the princely sum of £5.

It’s part of a national RBL initiative in support of Armed Forces veterans, wives and widows, with a similar scheme being recently launched at the Bordon branch.

Around a dozen villagers tucked into variations of a full English with sausages, eggs, bacon, beans, mushrooms, toast and hash browns on the menu along with tea and coffee.

And it was clear the breakfast cooked up by Ros Humphries and Jane Williams went down a treat with diners, with co-organiser Cliff Salmons hoping the soft launch will give villagers a taste of things to come.

“We’ve got a good menu and I think diners will be satisfied,” said Cliff, who co-organised the event with fellow club member Frank Smyth.

“We’re looking to attract Armed Forces veterans, wives, widows and members of the local community. It’s open to everyone but we would like to people to book beforehand.

“It’s not been hard to set up, but because it’s a branch initiative we’ve needed the goodwill of the club to get it going. But they have and we’re very happy going forward.”

Diners can also relax and play board games or table tennis after their meals, for more details or to book for the April 10 breakfast call Cliff on 07771 913413 or email [email protected]
