CHRISTMAS DINNER 2009

The Luncheon Club, after another successful year celebrated with a Christmas Lunch on 17th December. The Club, founded eleven years ago, sets out to provide a hot meal and some good company to its pensioner members every Thursday throughout the year.

This year one hundred and ten Christmas Dinners were prepared, though there were a few absentees due to the very cold weather. The fourteen regular volunteer helpers, plus some additional help over the Christmas period served piping hot meals, and drinks from the trolley.

The Point Clear Community Association’s Dumont Hall was decorated for Christmas and each table place had a small Christmas gift, a cracker and a Christmas Card from the club. Paper hats soon appeared on heads!


It takes a while for everyone to be served but this provides an opportunity for a chat with friends before lunch is served. Staff can be seen in the background offering a choice of soft drinks or wine

HAPPY CHRISTMAS

TO EVERYONE!!



The guests seated at the top table from left to right were Sonia Grantham, Chairman of the Parish Council; Brenda Lord, Earls Hall Farm, who once again has donated the turkeys from her farm; The Rev'd Heather Connell, Assistant Priest; Pastor David Bavistor, Methodist Church Minister; Barbara Francis, Chairman Dumont Luncheon Club; Cllr Nick Turner, Chairman of Tendring District Council; Mr Ken Doree, Chairman of the PCCA; his wife Maureen; Marjorie Talbot, wife of Cllr. Michael Talbot, District Councillor (taking the photographs)


After everyone is served our helpers settle down to enjoy their meal.


Without these kind residents working with the Club, no meals could be served.


Back to work after their meal, helpers with the trolley serving diners with tea or coffee




All those attending enjoyed themselves and left the Lunch with full stomachs and in good spirits. Thanks are due also to the voluntary service drivers of the mini buses that brought quite a few diners to the hall in time for lunch.
We all noticed that Barbara Francis was using a crutch following a recent operation and we wish her a speedy and full recovery.
