Necton Lunch club increases capacity, thanks to a grant from the Lord Baker Community Fund

The Parish Council secured a grant of £300 to purchase a counter top oven, which gives Necton Lunch Club the opportunity to expand and provide 36 meals at their monthly lunches.  This is a very popular club, providing people, living alone or housebound, the opportunity to get out, have a hot meal and enjoy some lively company.

The Necton Lunch Club team preparing pudding with the new counter-top oven in use behind them.

Run by members of the Church, every month, these volunteers set up a banqueting table in the community centre, provide a taxi service for those who can’t travel, cook a nutritious two course meal, using fresh ingredients and to exacting standards of hygiene that has assured them of a certificate rating 5 (the highest) from Breckland Council.

The hall and cooks are now ready for their guests.

The funds were granted by the Lord Baker Community Fund, which is managed by Norfolk Community Foundation.
