Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Club
An Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Club has recently started in Rushcliffe and meets in Gamston once a month. The breakfast clubs are there to help support veterans who may not usually want to get involved in or with more formal environments, the aim is to get to understand the needs of our ex services community and promote camaraderie.
The club meets at 9:30 on the last Saturday of each month at The Goose at Gamston, Ambleside, Gamston, Nottingham NG2 6NA.

It features a thriving church dedicated to St Mary the Virgin; a popular village hall; a pub called The Griffin Inn (which is currently closed for refurbishment and will re-open again in 2018); a premier league cricket team; and the award-winning Perkins Bar & Bistro and Carriage Hall.
