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. Our meeting on 12th October was at The Halsey Arms. This was our first visit to the pub since the new owners took over and Johnnie and Karen made us more than welcome. The food, a carvery, was delicious and plentiful and Elsie and Annette the waitresses were very helpful, assist-ing those of us who aren't so mobile these days. A huge thank you to all of them. We were very happy to welcome some visitors at the lunch and hope they will become members and we shall see them at our next meeting on 9th November at the Village Hall. As Jan Burnett has now stood down as Chairman, the numbers you now need to ring to put your name down for lunch, if you have not al-ready done so, is Diana 01300 345434 or Susan 01300 345760. 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.
