Newport Luncheon Club meets in the Committee Room in Newport Memorial Hall on alternate Fridays when the meal starts at 12.30 pm. The food is home-cooked by volunteers and is healthy fare, consisting of 2 courses and tea or coffee. The cost of £3 includes a raffle ticket.
Carers who bring people to the meal are also welcome to stay.
If you are attending for the first time it would help with catering if you telephone one of the organisers beforehand.
If anyone needs help with transport to and from the Hall, the local Country Cars (Community Transport) team (Gaynor and Ken Davies 01239 820090) may be able to assist.
The Senior Citizens Welfare Committee organises a Christmas Lunch and a “Mystery Outing” each year for Luncheon Club members. There is also an outing for senior citizens in the summer, and at Christmas Newport people who are 90 years of age and over receive a Christmas present from the Committee, as do people who are housebound and those who have moved into a home elsewhere.
Donations to support all this work are always welcome.
The Luncheon Club is looking for extra volunteers to help produce the meal. This can be great fun and very rewarding work so if anyone feels they could spare a few hours now and then, or if any group would like to start a new team, please get in touch with Rosemary Elmes (01239 820104) or Elaine Lloyd (01239 820037)
