The church runs a lunch club for retired people in the village on the third Tuesday of every month (but not August).
For a very reasonable £4 per head, we provide – for example – soup, bread from the local bakery, cheese and biscuits and fruit, followed by tea or coffee, and in warmer months a ploughman’s lunch or quiche and salad followed by cake, tea or coffee. We always have a free raffle afterwards, so please feel free to bring along a small prize. The idea is for people in the village to get to know each other. You do not have to attend church to come for lunch – everyone is welcome. The December ‘do’ is always fun, as we will sings Christmas Carols and eat fish (or sausage) and chips from the local ‘chippy’. The cost has to be more for that one … And we also eat the odd mince pie or two …!
If you would like to join us, it’s at 12.30 on third Tuesdays in the Old School Hall, Poyle Road. Please ring Margaret on 01252 664184 or Madeleine on 01252 783364 to let us know you are coming – by the Friday before the lunch, please - so that we have enough food!
