Every Thursday local people of Church Stretton meet for hot dinner and a good chat at Ley Gardens. For some, it is the highlight of their week and offers a social event as well as a lovely lunch.
It’s been 27 years since the Lunch Club first began in Church Stretton and has previously been hosted at Mayfair and Windsor Place. Margaret Hamer is one of the organisers and with other volunteers they provide a two course meal for £7 every Thursday at 12.30, although attendees can come anytime from 10am for a coffee and a chat.
The event helps to combat isolation and encourages new friendships for the over 55s.
As well as the lovely food there is a raffle and the group organise a trip in December to a local venue for a Christmas Lunch.
