Our Gateshead

First Light - Gateshead Veterans Support Group

About us: 

First Light Veterans Support Group -  Founded in February 2017.

We offer veterans of any age, gender, cap badge, and length of service a safe and informal place to meet, socialise and discuss any problems that we might have.

We meet three days a week Monday 13.00pm to 3.00pm, Wednesday 12.00pm to 4.00pm and every Friday afternoon 1.00pm to 2.30pm.

On Monday’s you will find us at the allotment getting stuck into the garden, as well as having the odd cheaky BBQ

Wednesday afternoon's are our fishing club, our usual spot is behind the Copthorn Hotel on the Newcastle side of the river, but we also plan trips away to Derwent water and Kielder.

Our Friday group is based at Gateshead Carer's building, John Haswell House, and is used as a check in session prior to the up-coming week end, and of course, a good brew is always on offer.

There is no pressure to attend every week, you can drop in and out whenever you like.

If you’re a veteran and at a loose end and you fancy meeting like-minded people to share laughs and any problems you might have then come along.

Please feel free to contact Wayne for an informal chat.

Partners, carers and family members are always welcome.
