A thank you dinner for all the helpers
Today was a special day at the Old Buckenham Luncheon Club. It was a chance to say thank you to all those who volunteer their time and energy every fortnight throughout the year to provide the opportunity for a cooked meal for those living on their own in Old Buckenham and the surrounding villages.
There are those who come early put out the tables and chairs, to prepare vegetables, to collect the participants and drive them to the village hall, to run the raffle, to cook all the food, to serve the meals, wash up everything and then drive people home again.
Today's meal included a choice of wine or soft drinks to wash down roast beef and all the trimmings followed by home-made trifle, coffee and mints.
After the meal, Bridget Burton spoke to thank all these many helpers who do so much to make this activity possible.
