Lunch Club

The Hambledon Lunch Club operates on a monthly basis for the benefit of the elderly residents who live in the Parish of Hambledon and are 70+ years old. The Lunch Club can only cater for 40 persons maximum, so it will be on a first come basis. Diners must book their Lunch the week before (the numbers expected need to be known). There will be no registration fee, just the cost of the meal.

The organisers have set the limit to 40. However, should the total numbers of diners from Hambledon be less than 40, it may be possible to extend the criteria to the elderly from adjoining Parishes and to visitors staying with regular diners. This would be judged on a month by month basis.

Date: 1st Wednesday of each month
Venue: Hambledon Village Hall
Times: Doors open at 12 noon; Lunch served at 12.30pm.

Cost: £2.50 to include: main course, pudding, tea or coffee.
