Breakfast Clubs are completely FREE…. And will always remain free!
There are no fees or subs and NOT here to make money for any organisation/business.
It all started at a Garage, when three friends used to meet on a Saturday morning, they used to get together and have a morning butty and banter.
Then one day a Sapper brought a BV206 military tracked vehicle in for some work doing to it, as he was looking for someone who knew about military vehicles. Once the vehicle was there it generated interest in mates getting together, lads from an old army unit whilst looking at the tracked vehicle.
Then after that, it started by word of mouth, first to someone in Newcastle who was visiting Hull, then it grew from there.
Since the start of the first Butty & Banter Club it has grown to worldwide, with clubs in multiple countries.
How comes it has split?
It split after there was financial irregularities with the CIC Company (Company Number 10251007), when it was pointed out to the Director that Beers were been sold at clubs and the money was unaccounted for (at the time nearly £600), he did not deal with the issue or mention it to the person in question, in his words "I didn't mention it...., I don't want to yet.."
It was at this point that Dave Williamson asked for advice from the Treasurer of the Breakfast Club and joint decision were made by David Williamson and others (5 in total) at the Breakfast Club not to be involved with a company which was not open and transparent and a Director who was not interested in protecting Veterans Funds.
Veterans Breakfast Clubs CIC (Company Number 11161286) currently own the Logo (which was signed over in front of witnesses), Domain Names (.com, .co.uk and .org) and the Twitter account.
Since the 3rd March 2018 (when the paperwork was signed) the Logo belongs to Veterans Breakfast Clubs CIC (Company Number 11161286, Trading Name - Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Club).
After the lies and false allegations that have been and continue to be spread by the Director and his partner (to cover what the truth is) and after a police investigation they have both had a solicitor’s letter and a visit from the police in attempt to stop them spreading these false allegations. We are now running the AFVBC as it should be run "BY Veterans FOR Veterans" NOT by veterans for the few.
We believe it should be run BY VETERANS FOR VETERANS.
