Parish Lunches (Currently on hold due to the COVID restrictions in place)
St.Mary’s have been organising lunches for the elderly once a month on the first Wednesday in the month (apart from December, when it takes place nearer to Christmas) for the last 30 years.
The lunch is open to anyone who is elderly or lives alone and is not restricted to Church members. Currently members from St. Mary’s and St. Francis attend, as well as others not connected to either Church. The food is prepared and cooked on site by one person with a team of five others who set up, serve, clean and wash up afterwards. It is a very happy occasion and apart from enjoying the home-cooked food, they all enjoy the social time together. At the Christmas lunch, a sing-along of popular Christmas songs and carols after they have wined and dined!
