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 the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month from 10am to 1.30pm.
There is time to socialise then to listen to an informal talk or take part in another enjoyable activity.
Following the talk it’s time to enjoy a leisurely high quality cooked lunch. All this for a very reasonable £6.00 with a tea or coffee on arrival, a delicious lunch, a tasty dessert, and another drink afterwards. Due to rising costs we have had to increase the price of Luncheon Club to £6 from January 2020.
Please BOOK IN ADVANCE each week with Maureen Richardson on tel: 01524 811316 or by e-mail: Centremanager@haltoncentre.org. Please advise us if you have any dietary requirements.
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.
So do take the opportunity to come along to these talks and enjoy the Spring Programme.
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.
