LymeForward's monthly Community Lunch is a true 'community' event, and not just for those who attend.
The July gathering rang the changes by providing a very successful ‘high tea’, where participants benefited from the company and enjoyed sharing a meal with others. Chris Tipping created vast numbers of delicious cakes and sandwiches, Charmouth Bakery provided bread, The Good Food shop donated scones, The Cornish Bakery gave clotted cream and the Galley Café baked a big chocolate tray bake. As always, volunteers turned out to make the event happen. Heartfelt community action in action!
So generous were the community food contributions that the Meet & Remember Group later benefited from a fine selection of cakes, relieving their usual volunteer baker of the task; Abbeyfield House received a selection of cakes; and the left over bread went to the Youth Club.
Community Lunch takes a holiday in August, as will Meet & Remember , then will ring another change by holding the lunch at the Football Club on Wednesday 19th September, before the Meet & Remember café which begins there at 2.00pm. Organisers believe that there is potential cross-over between the two events, which by merging seamlessly together could make for an enjoyable ‘day out’.
The football club is an excellent venue, with good kitchen, very comfortable ‘lounge’, and a lovely covered open air sitting area also available (if it's not raining …). LymeForward is grateful to the Club for providing the premises as a community contribution.
