Churches Together in Whaley Bridge holds a luncheon club at 12 noon on the last Thursday of each month at the Uniting Church on Buxton Road in Whaley. The aim of the club is to provide a warm nutritious two course meal and a friendly meeting place for older people who live on their own or who need a break now and then – all for just £3.50. The Club was formed in June 2008 and has proved a great success, welcoming 30+ people from all walks of life each month. The Town Council very kindly donated £100 to the club which has been put to good use providing a much needed steamer in which to prepare nutritious veggies – though these are generally followed by somewhat less virtuous but delicious puds!
If you or anyone you know would like to come to the club, or indeed if you would like to become a volunteer cook or helper, please ring the Uniting Church on 01663 734479 who will put you in touch with a club member. The Club has a limited capacity to arrange transport for those who could otherwise be unable to attend.
