A dedicated team of volunteers have celebrated serving their 100th lunch at Bishop Norton Village Hall.

The monthly lunches began in 2007 as a way of getting the hall used more.

“We love it,” said Beryl Hewitt, one of those who has 
attended the lunches since they began.

“There is always lovely food - and we don’t have to wash up.”

Fellow long-time diner Sylvia Graves added: “When you are on your own, the lunches give you the chance to talk to people - if it isn’t on for any reason I really miss it.”

The lunches take place on the second Wednesday of each month and is something all ages can enjoy.

“The lunches are open to anyone, but it tends to be retired people who attend,” said Karen Flear, one of the team of five ladies that organise the lunches.

“It wasn’t until the end of last year that we worked out how many lunches we had served, so thought the 100th one was worth celebrating.”

And celebrate they did, with musical entertainment, as well as the usual two-course meal.
