I am a relative newcomer to the Lunch Club which meets twice a month, on a Wednesday at 12.30pm, but now I find it so enjoyable that I make every effort to attend.
The Club is a meeting place to enjoy a most appetising lunch of home-made soup, dessert and tea/coffee/biscuit, all for the amazing price of £2.50. That this is possible is due to the generous efforts of three teams of ladies (about 28 helpers in all) who, under the leadership of Marjorie Guiler, Janet Robinson & Muriel Bloomer, act as cooks, waitresses, table layers, clearers and washers, always with a smile.
We are indebted to six or seven car drivers who, so attentively, call at doors and transport a number of members to the Rosetta Hall. Irene Younge acts as co-ordinator for the Club. Usually about 35 to 40 of us appear on the appropriate day, and sit at tables of 6 people, where the ‘craic’ is as good as the food. I have met new companions and caught up with ‘old’ friends. Indeed it is a pleasure to see so many former Brownies in the teams - perhaps working for their Cooks Badge set them on the road to culinary expertise! Certainly the lovely Christmas dinner which we all enjoyed so much is a great credit to everyone concerned.
Another special event was a visit, after lunch at the hall as usual, to the private cinema in Comber where everyone thoroughly enjoyed a screening of “The Queen” .
Do come and join the Club. If you need transport just let Irene know and one of the driving team will pick you up at home.
She will also be able to give you a diary of meeting dates.
We meet from October to May with the outing in May.
