The Pendle Armed Forces Covenant Group is moving its drop-in sessions to the Railway Street Community Centre in Nelson.

The drop-in sessions offer help to serving and ex-serving British Armed Forces representatives and their families who live in Pendle.

And from Tuesday, the sessions will be held at the Railway Street Community Centre, moving from the ACE Centre in Cross Street.

Every Tuesday from 10am-12pm, people are invited to drop-in to have a brew and a chat.

Geoff Whitehead, who represents Pendle Council on the Armed Forces Covenant Group, said: “The drop-in sessions are informal and very welcoming.

“They’re a great opportunity for in-service and ex-service personnel and their families to come together.

“I hope the support and advice will prove to be invaluable to them.”

The Pendle Armed Forces Covenant Group was formed following the signing of the covenant in Pendle in late 2012.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a commitment from public, charity and voluntary sector organisations to ensure that serving or non-serving members of the Armed Forces are not disadvantaged in wider society.

It aims to encourage support for the Armed Forces community working and living in Pendle and to recognise and remember the sacrifices they have made.

This includes in-service and ex-service personnel, their families and their widows and widowers in Pendle.
