Lunch Club @ Puncknowle Village Hall

The Lunch Club is for all people over 50 who live or have lived in our 3 villages. It is a very social time with a great meal as well. It is not just for our older residents and it would be good to see you join us every 3rd Tuesday 0f the month. Please get in touch if you would like to join us. Anyone wishing to join us, or those who have booked a meal and cannot make it, please telephone David Buckland on 898492.

The meal is a choice of 2 main meals and 2 puddings finished off with cheese & biscuits, tea & coffee all for £5. We serve at 1pm but most of our regulars come early for a great social get together. Hope to see you soon.

Helpers are always welcome whether it is setting up the hall for the meals, preparing food and/or cooking or clearing up afterwards. You do not have to be a committee member. We are especially in great need of people to cook for us as our numbers of helpers has decreased. If you feel you would like to join us in this venture or want to know more please telephone me David Buckland 898492 and I would be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
