Did you know lunch is served every Thursday at 12.30pm in the Jubilee Room at the back of our Church Hall in Newbottle?  Meals such as Mince & Dumplings, Cottage Pie, Hotpot etc followed by a dessert are provided by a group of volunteers from St.Matthew’s Church and are freshly prepared in the Church Hall kitchen.


This is a great opportunity to meet up with friends old and new, and enjoy a hot meal at a modest cost (£3.50).  The service we provide has significant positive effects as it provides a forum for people to socialise and build new relationships, in a comfortable and friendly environment.  Many say that they would not bother to cook similar meals for themselves; and that it is the only time they eat in the company of others, which improves their appetite!  This type of service has long been endorsed by Age UK as a key way of increasing social contact and health/nutrition which plays a vital role in supporting individuals and in maintaining their contact with the community.

If you would like to attend the weekly lunch club please call Malcolm Adamson first on:
