Infantry reunion for the weekend

The Clifton Arms in Warton is set to host the first ever North West Light Infantry reunion.

The Clifton Arms in Warton is set to host the first ever North West Light Infantry reunion.

The first ever North West Light Infantry reunion will take place on Saturday, in Warton.

The event, starting at noon, at the Clifton Arms, is a gathering of former and serving members of the regiment.

Although the north west was not a recruiting area for the regiment, battalions served at Weeton Barracks during the 1980s, with many members settling in the area after 
service. The reunion will include a raffle in aid of charity Care4Casualties. There will also be music and entertainment.

Organiser Ray Kennedy said: “Having attended our annual reunion in Shrewsbury, I was amazed to find out how many ex-soldiers and serving soldiers from my regiment have settled in the Fylde area. I decided it was time to organise a 
reunion for the North West.”
