The December Lunch Hub was our busiest yet.
Sixty one residents (and visitors) of all ages enjoyed a festive get-together before Christmas on Wednesday 5th December. Warming soups and homemade bread were followed by a splendid array of cakes. We were delighted to welcome the teachers from the primary school to this event, which enabled them to see how much each group of children enjoy the interaction with the village community and are getting great practice at describing what is on offer and selling from the produce table. With a range of Christmassy products made both by them and donated by villagers, they were able to take back over £100 for school funds.Each group of children will now come down to have their lunch with us, rather than in the school. The cakes were greatly enjoyed and a particular sponge described as awesome!
