The lunch club tries to provide the sort of menu that a person would probably not cook for themselves and it is particularly hoped that those living alone would enjoy eating lunch in the company of others.
Twenty five years or so ago a lunch club was suggested. The idea was that a different team should organise a lunch each month, however this did not work out and we have had a regular kitchen team for many years.
The ethos is that a good home cooked meal, using fresh ingredients as much as possible, at a reasonable price, should be provided and served tastefully.
We cater for a maximum of 24 diners. Although church based, we welcome people from other churches and non church goers. We ask for places to be booked and paid for at least a week ahead of our meal. Except for good reasons we do not refund if a diner is unable to come. This enables us to run on a tight budget and avoid waste. However, we are able to donate to our Church Gift Day as a contribution to the heating, gas etc that enables us to function. We now combine November and December as they are so close and have managed to keep the cost at £4 for a two or sometimes three course meal.
If more details are required, Megan would be happy to supply them to anybody interested in joining us.
The Lunch Club meets at 1pm on the last Wednesday of each month.
