Lunch Club

Every Tuesday from 12:00 to 14:00

It is open to everyone, particularly those on their own It brings people together to enjoy a hot nutritious meal and socialise with friends at the same time. The meal of course is just one part of the lunchtime experience. It's a social occasion as much as it is a nutritional one. It is the opportunity to have an inexpensive, warm, healthy and tasty meal, outside of the home and is also the opportunity to meet with others in a social setting. For people living on their own both can be equally important. We are also looking to start social activities, like bingo, films and days out, please call in if you would like to help.

Some local residents tell us:
"Could be in the house all week and not see a soul."
"It’s for the companionship as well as the novelty of having someone else cook; it’s nice to have someone cook for you."
