The VAPC also provide support to Veterans UK by assisting individuals with any problems or complaints they have regarding the war pensions or AFCS claims process and much more besides.

NEW Armed Forces Veterans Bikers Breakfast Club (AFVBBC)

Introducing a new breed of club in the breakfast clubs’ network here at afvbc.com and the first Armed Forces Veterans Biker Breakfast Club.

We’ve been busy over lockdown working out how we can bring together military veteran bikers to meet up all over the UK and the new club was formed in March 2021. Whilst the first club covers Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire, it is not limited to those in those counties as any military veteran biker can join the group no matter where they live.

West Country AFVBC

This year marks 60 years since the end of National Service in the UK. We're hoping to have a chat with someone who completed their National Service. We're specifically looking for someone based in Bristol, Bath, Gloucestershire or Wiltshire.

The questions would be simple and following the lines of:

1. What was the best and worst thing about your National Service?

2. What did you learn from your National Service?

If you know of anyone who matches that description who would be willing to talk to us, then please let me know!
