A new lunch club for the over 60s is being launched next month at the Red Lion Coaching Inn, Ellesmere. People are encouraged to bring friends or just to come along and make new ones. The club will run every month initially but might meet more often if members request this.
The full menu is available, plus a menu for smaller appetites at £5.50 for one course and £7.50 for two courses. Starters include a traditional prawn cocktail, soup of the day, and grilled black pudding; mains include chicken dishes, fish and chips, and sausage and mash; while those who opt for a pudding can indulge in hot chocolate fudge cake, spotted dick or syrup sponge.
The first meeting of the club will be held on Friday, 16th February between 12 and 2pm at the Red Lion on Church Street.
Organiser, Anne Wignall, said: “We are very grateful to the Red Lion for agreeing to host this Lunch Club. Everyone will receive a very warm welcome and, although people may arrive as strangers, they will leave as friends.”
For further information and to reserve your place, please contact Margaret Lagoyianni at the Red Lion on 01691 622632 between 10 and 3pm, except Mondays. Although the club is aimed at the over 60s, anyone who would like to make new friends is welcome.
