Borough of Bury Veterans Association (BOBVA) was formed in 2017 with their first meeting being held on the 5th February at Yates Bar in Bury with just 43 attendees.
They have since grown to a strength of approximately 200 members which resulted in a necessary relocation to Fishpool Liberal Club, on the first Sunday of each month.
The Association was established to provide assistance to veterans and their dependants, by providing a social and support network unifying all three Services in the Borough of Bury.
They also provide a Veteran presence at established parades in the Borough, raise funds to support veterans & veterans charities in the Borough and provide a social environment including visits, events and trips for veterans, and like minded people, to further a sense of “belonging” within both the veteran and wider community as a whole.
