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 £4.
We are very grateful to the Aviva Community Fund for providing a grant in 2015 to help us to purchase much needed new crockery and cutlery specifically for the Luncheon Club.
Two of the highlights in 2016 have been 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/
These are the talks and demonstrations in early 2017 :
Friday February 24th – Gill Allen and friends will return, by popular request, to entertain with a Melody Mix – with keyboard, violin and vocals
Friday March 10th – David Bousfield returns with his popular slide show of landscapes around Britain – Land’s End to John O’ Groats.
