The second Sunday in each month means ‘pinnies off, coats on’ for a group of ‘certain age’ ladies and gents as they head off for lunch at one of the area’s hostelries. This was started four years ago and the group has been enjoying good food and great company once a month ever since. The membership total stands at 26, with an average number of 18 people usually attending. The venue is chosen, and the event co-ordinated so that non-driving diners are assured of a lift. Although noisy on occasion, they’ve so far not been banned from any of the pubs they’ve frequented!

In December 22 of the group will enjoy a Christmas lunch at the Golden Ball, Boxworth. The deposits have been paid, the menus chosen, and lunch at their favourite venue is eagerly anticipated. It’s bound to be a happy, noisy affair with much laughter and will be a wonderful start to the Christmas celebrations.
