Welcome to the Wessex branch of The Western Front Association.

Due to the coronavirus, the meetings in April, May and June 2020 were cancelled. The September and October meetings were held, with strict precautions relating to Covid-19, but the November and December meetings were cancelled as has been the February 2021 meeting. We hope to resume our activities as soon as possible!

We meet at 2.00pm for a 2.30pm start.

There are no meetings in July or August. 

Meetings are held at Pimperne Village Hall in the heart of rural Dorset. Pimperne village lies two miles north-east of the Georgian Town of Blandford Forum with Blandford Camp, currently home of the Royal Signals, less than a mile away.
