Christmas Festivities

Written by Sheridan Rocher

We were lucky indeed to have Father Christmas visit us on two separate occasions at our Xmas lunch club, and our Xmas party. Thank you to the very kind members of the public that thoughtfully filled shoeboxes for Father Christmas to hand out. Our Xmas party had a fantastic turn out filling the hall at the Community Centre. Thanks to Herne Junior School Choir and the George for providing us with the entertainment.

Who ate all the pies?

Written by Sheridan Rocher

Look at these amazing pies produced by Sea and Spud - the fish and chip shop on Sheet Street. Marian, our new lunch club cook, won them in a ‘design a pie’ competition and very generously donated them as a meal for our lunch club members. All tucked into their Steak and Ale pies on the last lunch club meet up this year.

Here are a few of us at the mad hatters table in Hotham Park on our day trip to Bognor. With this fabulous weather we had two minibuses laid on, lunch at the fabulous Age UK Laburnum Centre, and an afternoon of Music Hall delights at the Alexandra Theatre. Thank you to Churchers College for loaning us the additional minibus which meant that more people could come along.

Our grateful thanks to them for their generous support to fund transport costs to collect surplus food from the FareShare scheme and use it for our twice weekly lunch club.
