Thursdays 12:00 - 1:00pm
Social and informal space for older people to have a complete lunch that includes a homemade soup, followed by a light course such as cheese and bread, not to forget the delicious pudding and tea. This is a small lunch club, between 10 to 15 people, held in the community hall, which is accessible for wheelchair users. People sit in tables of 3 to 4 people and are very friendly with newcomers.
Some people join from the University of the Third Age, that takes place just before the lunch in the main church venue. You may also be interested in other groups managed by members of the University of the Third Age, some of which take place in the same venue, such as film and book clubs.
What people say
Rose has only been attending the lunch club for a few months since the University of the Third Age moved to the church. "The University talks are not enough for socialising. The activities afterwards are where you can meet new people and make friends. I always looked forward to retirement because I thought I would have time to read and do all those things I never had time to do. That lasted a couple of years. Then I realised I was bored, I needed to get out and find new things to do, meet new people. The University of the Third age is a great place to start."
