Latest news from the lunch group

Lunch Group

The Christmas Lunch at the Albert Hall was much enjoyed on Wednesday, 15th December, despite Covid. There were only 24 of us but it was a lovely occasion, made even better by the high quality of the lunch and the friendliness of the staff. Sue Foss and Judy Pritchard won the Christmas Quiz and Alan Snape the Christmas Lucky Number.

In view of the increased Covid activity I have decided to postpone the January 26th lunch which was planned for The Nabb Inn. At least 26 members had put their names down for this event so please check your diaries and cancel this date.

I have booked the February lunch for the 23rd at The Shepherd’s Rest, Bagthorpe and this is now full also. Obviously we hope this will still go ahead but at the moment we are just planning month by month. Let us hope the rest of 2022 will be a much better year.

Our second Lunch Group in nineteen months was on Wednesday, 24th November, 2021 at Sprinters in Arnold when 27 of us sat down to dine. Once again the restaurant did not want our pre-orders or any deposits so that wasn’t so difficult to organise.

The Christmas Lunch at the Albert Hall on Wednesday, 15th December,2021 is now booked and we look forward to what is always a lovely meal and venue.

Our local venue for January is The Nabb Inn which has just had a major refurbishment. I am taking names now so please reserve your place for Wednesday, 26th January, 2022.

I have also booked the February lunch for the 23rd at The Shepherd’s Rest, Bagthorpe; it’s a little more difficult to find but I will post directions and menus in January for pre-booking. If you have any favourite restaurants or recommendations, please let me know.

The first Lunch Group in over eighteen months was on Wednesday, 27th October at Miller & Carter, Papplewick when 24 sat down to dine. As I was away in Scotland, Rose Ridley kindly was in charge and I hope everything went well. Luckily the restaurant did not want our pre-orders or any deposits so it was a bit easier for our first time out in ages.

Sprinters at Arnold (part of the Stadium Leisure company and similar menu to that at The Broomhill) is the November 24th lunch and I will email everyone with the menu soon so please let me have your choices by return.

I am also taking names for the Christmas Lunch at the Albert Hall on Wednesday, 15th December, 3 courses for £19.95. We always enjoy a lovely meal at the Albert Hall with silver service by welcoming staff. There are still places left but I will need the balance of the cost at the November meeting if you have just paid a deposit, or the full cost if you are only just putting your name down.

I shall be looking for a local venue for January in case we have snow (you never know!).
