You all know how important to me ex-servicemen’s clubs, Remembrance and care for those who’s seen military service is to me and this blog in general – it’s with that in mind that I’d like to draw reader’s attention to the following association for ex-naval folk who’d like to meet socially and socialise with people from a similar background.
Old friend of the blog Neil Harris from Pelsall wrote to tell me about Bloxwich Royal Naval Association, and ask if I’d give them a plug – something I’m happy to do.
I hope you’re well and enjoying this long sought after fine weather.
I need your help if I can be so cheeky.
My father in law is the president of the Bloxwich Royal Naval Association. They have been going for many years, but numbers are beginning to dwindle. They don’t need any money, just time and willing – and new members!
The club is open to everyone who served from Walsall borough. I think because it’s in Bloxwich people don’t know about it.
People may look for a Walsall RNA and there isn’t one! Once you have one in the district you can’t have another and Bloxwich got there first. I hope there’s a few ex seamen in the area who may be interested as it would be a great shame if they folded.
I’ve set up a FB page to try and generate interest (click here), and I just need it publicised. I hope you can help.
I’m happy to share this fine club and hope that some of the ex sailors here fancy going to check the Association out.
The Bloxwich Royal Naval Association meet each week at 12pm at Colebatches club in Leamore, Walsall (699 Bloxwich Rd, Walsall WS3 2BD). A social gathering that enables ex and current members of the forces to discuss life in the service, reminisce over old times and also talk about the future, and of course enjoy the odd tot or two!
Again, check out their Facebook page here, or if preferred, comment here or mail me and I’ll hook you cup with Neil. This really is a great thing and deserves our support.
