Welcome to the Wessex branch of The Western Front Association.

We gather at 2.00pm for a 2.30pm start.

There are no meetings in July. 

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.
