Branch makes life easier for one local RAF veteran

The RAF Association Branch based at here RAF St Mawgan and the Newquay Veterans Breakfast Club met up at the Newquay Best Western Hotel on Wednesday to present RAF Veteran Jay Anson with a Beach Access Wheelchair and a modified Surfboard.

Jay, who served at RAF St Mawgan in the 90’s, regularly attends the Veterans Breakfast Club and the affiliated Surf Club but could only watch his colleagues enjoy the water from the promenade, being excluded by the restricted access.  Through local contacts, the RAF Association heard of Jays predicament and through its welfare programme, funded and procured the specialist wheelchair and surfboard for Jay.

Now able to join the Veterans Surf Club wholly in its activities, Jay commented “I’m thrilled to be able to now get involved completely with the Club and I can’t thank the RAF St Mawgan RAFA Branch and those that contributed to their welfare fund enough, for making this possible”

The Veterans Breakfast Club meets every Wednesday morning at 10:00 at the Steam Bar, Great Western Hotel (more details from Andy on 01637 874215) and for details regarding the local  RAF Association  Branch at RAF St Mawgan contact Steve Richards on or their web site at
