Kings Langley Good Neighbours
“Everyone is made to feel welcome...
.... with the added bonus of not having to cook!” “I enjoy every minute I’m here. The food is very good and the helpers do a great job, and of course the company is enjoyable.” “Enjoy coming, and appreciate the lift.” “Lovely grub.....!”
These are just a few of the comments from our guests at the Good Neighbours’ Lunch Club which held a celebration in October to mark its 50th birthday. Eric Martin, our Chairman, outlined some of the recent history of the Club, while our President, Stephen Clarke, added reminiscences of the early days when the meals were cooked in helpers' homes and carried through the streets on trays!
After the speeches and the cutting of the cake with its sparkling candles, everyone was presented with a suitably inscribed mug as a memento. There were “Thank you’s” all round for the organisers, helpers, drivers, Colin ( the ‘washer-up’), and of course all the members who add to the friendly atmosphere each Tuesday.
Because of Covid restrictions on numbers we have a short waiting list. But if you or someone you know would like to join, express your interest by phoning the dedicated Lunch Club number: 07527 907 128.
