Are you a military veteran or in receipt of a war widow's or War Widower's pension?
If so did you know you are entitled to an official armed forces veterans badge?
The badge was first introduced in 2004 by the then Government and is available free of charge for anyone who served in the Army, the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines, the Royal Air Force or volunteer and regular reserve forces. There are separate veterans badges available for those who served as Bevin Boys or in the Women's Land Army or Women's Timber Corps.
We are keen to inform as many eligible residents as possible about this so they can take up the offer - so please do spread the word.
Please do get in touch with us by email and we will pass on the form so you can apply for your veterans badge - email@example.com or write to us at Bromley Liberal Democrats, 7 Station Road, Orpington, BR6 0RZ

Take a look at some of the highlights of our 2017 campaigning!
New stats from Met Police show Bromley Town was the 2nd worst ward in the borough for weapon crime - news coming only days after we heard that police in Greater London are facing a real-term cut of £26.3 million this year.
On 21 December the government announced that core funding for police budgets will remain exactly the same as last year. Taking into account inflation, that means the Metropolitan Police will fall a real-terms cut of £26.3 million
The additional £270m of funding the government claims to be investing in the police nationally depends entirely on local Police and Crime Commissioners raising the police precept in their areas, which the Liberal Democrats have branded a “stealth council tax rise.”
We had an early Christmas present on 13 December when planning permission for the proposed school at Bromley South was REFUSED! Just to reiterate - we love the idea of the school, but it's in the worst possible place. We've enjoyed the victory but now we need to get back to work to make sure all those Conservative councillors who voted against the plan start working hard finding an alternative site for the school before they let it slip out of their hands and their rejection is "conveniently" overturned on appeal.
Further information on our stance on this school is included in our Focus leaflet from September last year.
