Veterans in Sefton CIO attended an event today hosted by Keith Lloyd of the Brunswick Youth and Community Centre and the ladies from Sefton OPERA.
Today at the Brunny we had an event to celebrate 30 years of crimestoppers and also to commemorate Armed Forces Day. Sefton Opera organised the event along with the Brunswick Youth and Community Centre. During the event one of our youngest vets Brian (Ben) Devling was awarded his medal for his service in Libya. It was awarded by Jane Kennedy the Police Commissioner. Jane was dazzled by another of our Veterans the lovely Les and will share a picture of them together on her Twitter page.
The entertainment was provided by Sefton OPERA and they got the ladies up dancing and clapping.
Dave Smith our CEO took the opportunity to introduced Yvonne Cameron as our new counsellor. Yvonne who will be taking over Steve Calderbanks role, every one welcomed her with a big warm Veterans welcome.
Lots of new friends made and lots of smiley faces when the event finished 1430.
It was also good see Colette who works at Asda as their community liaison officer and Kate from The Royal British Legion.
