Lunch Club

What is it?

Woodhill Lunch Clubs offer Seniors good company and a square meal prepared by someone else one day each week. Doors open in time for mid-morning tea or coffee, after which the early birds generally choose between dominoes, Scrabble, reading the daily paper or just sitting and chatting. Late birds are still welcome up until the point when Lunch is served (12:30). The meal is served under arrangements approved by the local environmental health department.

We are open for most of the year, with short breaks as necessitated by holidays. At Christmas, a festive lunch is provided, generally preceded by a special programme, and we usually arrange a day-trip away each July. We can have up to 50 Seniors on a Wednesday. There is a small charge for those who can manage it. 

A meal prepared by someone else is always an attraction - but many admit that just getting out of the house and meeting with others is just as valuable to them. In needy cases we also provide transport to and from the Club. Some people have been referred by doctors or practice nurses, others have recommended themselves! If you would like to join us, or know someone who might benefit from doing so, please contact us.

When is it?

Every Wednesday from 10:30am until 2:00pm during school terms.
