Would you like to get together with like-minded people once a month to enjoy each other's company and good food at a reasonable price? Come along to one of our Lunch Clubs.
Throughout the area, people who are over 60 are meeting together in their communities to enjoy each other's company and good food. Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin now have over 40 local Lunch Clubs. Each club meets at least once a month at the same local venue to enjoy a two course lunch with tea or coffee for a reduced price. No membership is required but all lunches must be pre-booked, and cancelled if you are unable to attend.
Comments from Lunch Club members
'It's a great opportunity to meet up with everyone from my community.'
'I live alone and wouldn't normally consider going somewhere on my own. My Lunch Club enables me to get out and meet people who are in a similar situation.'
'How nice it is to enjoy a roast dinner and not have to cook it myself!'
'I've met so many new people and also someone I used to go to school with through our local Lunch Club.'
How to join
If you are interested in attending a Lunch Club, contact us on 01743 233 123 (Shropshire area) or 01952 201 803 (Telford area) for details of your nearest club and co-ordinator. Then, to pre-book a lunch, please contact your co-ordinator one week in advance of the next lunch.
If you are going along on your own it is a good idea to let the co-ordinator know so that they can welcome you when you arrive and help you to settle in and introduce you to some people during the first lunch if you would like them to.
