Luncheon Club for Over 55s
The Luncheon Club for the over 55s was successfully launched with a very enjoyable lunch in April 2013.
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.
We have found that costs are going up and up so regretfully we will be increasing the price of Luncheon Club to £6 in January 2020.
Please BOOK IN ADVANCE each week with Maureen Richardson on tel: 01524 811316 or by e-mail: Centremanager@haltoncentre.org
There is space for new participants so do come and you will be made very welcome. Don’t be shy, they are a friendly bunch, come and meet them.
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.

Volunteers for Luncheon Club
We could do with a few more volunteers to help with serving the meals, setting up and putting everything away afterwards.
Relief cooks for holiday cover would also be appreciated. Contact Maureen for details, email email@example.com or call 01524 811419
