Christine Allan: July 2016
A reminder that our last Lunch Club before the summer break will be July 26th July.
This week's lunch club was the last one that Keith was able to be with us, so we presented him with a small gift and card to wish him well in his new appointment in Wantage. We made sure he was well equipped with a suitable apron so that he would be able to get stuck in to their Lunch Club!
Thank you for all your help over the years Keith — you will be missed on a Tuesday!
After the summer break, the next Lunch Club will be September 13th — we meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month — and all are welcome.
With Keith leaving, Lunch Club has lost one of its regular helpers. He was a dab hand at serving and clearing up and helping to serve teas. I am looking for someone who can fill this role on a Tuesday. (Second and fourth Tuesdays)
It would involve being ready to serve at 12.30pm, having lunch with us and then helping to clear up at 1.15pm. We are usually finished by 1.45pm.
If you think this is something you can help with please speak to me. Of course you are also welcome to become a full member of the team and prepare and cook the meals. It really is not too daunting!
