Lunch Club

Over 90 or 80? Maybe in your seventies? 

Living alone and no longer driving, except

to potter around the village?  You have a

disability or long-term health problem, and

would love to get out to meet old friends or

make new ones?  If so, we would be

delighted to see you at the Second Friday

Lunch Club, which meets every month

alternating between the Village Hall at

Buckland Newton and a local pub.  The cost

is £6 for 2 courses.

To summarise our membership policy... We welcome anyone who is elderly, housebound, those with reduced mobility, for those who are carers for a family member, or those living alone. Sadly this has to be restricted to those living in Buckland Newton or one of its hamlets.  We also have to limit the numbers to 36 when doing a Village Hall lunch. Please note that couples are not excluded as long as one member meets the criteria as outlined. And, if you are still a youngster in your sixties but are interested for the future, let us know, and your name can be added to the waiting list. Great excitement amongst the volunteers of the Lunch Club as we were about to try our new oven! We met on a blustery 8th March in the Village Hall. We put the oven through its paces cooking a roast dinner and we are happy to report that it worked magnificently. Thank you to our great volunteers, no mean feat cooking a roast dinner for 34 people. Our next meeting will be at The Red Lion Winfrith on Friday 12th April. Please phone Diana (345434) or Su-san (345760) if you would like to join us. Our numbers at present are fairly low, so if anyone would like to join us please ring one of the above numbers. You are assured of a very warm welcome by our friendly group of members.
