Lunch Club:

We will hold a lunch club for older folks in Bon Accord on Thursday 7 October at 12,30pm. If you have reached lunch club age it would be lovely to see new faces. Over the last year we have sadly lost some of our helpers (Janice, Martha and Coleen) who have moved away. If you would like to join the lunch club team and can either make soup, sandwiches or just chat we would be delighted to have new people join the team. Please speak to Anne Smith.
