The Armed Forces Veterans Club have postponed, until further notice, all monthly breakfasts held on the last Saturday of the month, including the one scheduled for Saturday, March 28 at Wetherspoons in Bridport.

However, clubs are being asked to invoke the 'Buddy Buddy System'.

A spokesman for the Armer Forces and Veteran Breakfast Club said: "All military and veterans have had training and experience which is transferable to this situation.

"We are asking for volunteers in the clubs to 'buddy up' with elderly veterans, and include elderly neighboours too, as we value our senior veterans and citizens. Not to meet them, just call regularly, stay in touch, ensure they have medicines and food supplies which can be left on doorsteps."
