In December we enjoyed a spectacular Christmas dinner of turkey and all the trimmings prepared for us by Lynne Baines and Romaine Elsden. Thanks must go to a large team of helpers: Laura Hempstead, Dave Challinor, Linda Vertigans and others who all contributed to the day.
Our sincere thanks go to Margaret Jones-Evans who has co-ordinated our lunch club so wonderfully over the last years. She tells us that she has bought some new garden furniture with the money gifted to her as a thank you from the club. Jenny Elphick has now taken over as the new co-ordinator.
In January we enjoyed a fabulous roast dinner and sponge pudding prepared for us by Thelma Thorogood, Jenny Harvey and Jean Willoughby, washed up by Mary and Peter Paine and of course our stalwart captain of the dishwasher, Dave Challinor
Next lunch club is on Wednesday 12th February, just let Jenny Elphick know if you wish to book a place.
