Welcome to the Leicestershire & Rutland branch of The Western Front Association. 

 

The Leicestershire & Rutland Branch meets on the last Monday of each month.

Please check with the website and The Tiger for any changes where the last Monday falls on a Bank Holiday and during the Christmas period.

We meet at The Elms, Sports and Ex-Services Club, Bushloe End, Wigston, Leicester LE18 2BA. Meetings start at 7.00pm (for 7.30pm) and usually finish at around 9.45pm.

We welcome all WFA members and non-members to our meetings.

At present, we do not charge an attendance fee but do suggest a voluntary contribution of £3 per person to cover venue and guest speaker costs.

We have an extremely interesting and diverse programme of external and internal guest speakers from January to December.

The Branch's year runs from 1 November to 31 October and the AGM is normally held at either the November or December meeting.

We run a popular raffle during the interval at each Branch meeting with a strip of tickets costing just £1.

Refreshments are available from the venue's pay bar on arrival and also during a short break at the mid-point of the guest speaker's talk which is usually at around 8.15pm.
