“These Community Hubs are a place where the members of the Armed Forces Community, including serving personnel, veterans and their families, can come together for a chat and, if needed, support. Following on from successful afternoon sessions earlier in the year, I am pleased that we are now putting on evening sessions too, which will mean that more people can come along and join their local Community Hub.”Cllr Matt Binley, North Northamptonshire Council’s Executive Member for Housing, Communities and Levelling Up
“As a member of the Armed Forces Covenant, we have a duty and commitment to support ex and current service personnel in any way we can. As well as a chance to have a cup of tea and a chat with friends, this is a great opportunity to seek help and advice in a relaxed setting. So, I would encourage you to come along to one of the sessions.”Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the council

Plus, a new Armed Forces Community Hub has started at Sixfields Stadium in Northampton. These Hubs will take place on the first Monday of each month from 10am to 12noon.
