Luncheon Club for Over 55s
The Luncheon Club for the over 55s was successfully launched with a very enjoyable lunch in April 2013. For a report on this launch, see http://www.haltoncentre.org/2013/04/launch-of-luncheon-club/ AND see the photos below.
Since then it has become a popular regular event on Fridays, on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month from 10am to 1.30pm to give time for an informal talk or other enjoyable activity as well as a leisurely high quality cooked lunch at a very reasonable £5. For that price you get a tea or coffee on arrival, a delicious lunch, a tasty dessert, and another drink afterwards. Please BOOK IN ADVANCE each week with Maureen Richardson on tel: 01524 811316 or by e-mail: Centremanager@haltoncentre.org as the lunch is very popular and space is limited.
If you can’t come on the day, you can order a lunch to pick up or for a friend to take home for you. (payment in advance), ask Maureen for details.

Christmas Lunch in 2017 was delicious as always with entertainment featured provided by Lune Valley Voices and Halton Pre-School, all very enjoyable.
Two of the highlights in 2016 were a hugely successful Queen’s Birthday celebration on Friday June 10th – see the report on http://www.haltoncentre.org/2016/06/55s-celebrate-queens-90th-birthday/ – and a really excellent Christmas lunch on Friday December 9th – see report on http://www.haltoncentre.org/2016/12/great-luncheon-club-christmas-lunch/
We are very grateful to the Aviva Community Fund for providing a grant in 2015 to help us to purchase much needed crockery and cutlery specifically for the Luncheon Club.
Please also contact Maureen if you are able to help co-ordinate the sessions, or prepare or serve refreshments, or help with transport, tel: 01524 811316 or by e-mail: Centremanager@haltoncentre.org
DO come along – it’s a great way to spend a Friday lunchtime!
