Meet Michelle…

Michelle began attending our Wednesday Lunch Club when it launched in September 2022. She enjoys having a chat with friends, joining in activities and, most of all, tucking into a home-cooked, two-course lunch.Like many people, Michelle found the lockdowns difficult, and was disappointed that when things began to get back to normal, some of the groups she had previously attended in the town centre did not start up again.

For Michelle, coming to the Lunch Club has led to her attending other groups which meet at the Sacred Heart Community Centre. Her week now includes Tai-Chi, Friendship Fridays and the new Thursday Games Club.

Michelle says “Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Attending these different groups and activities gets me out of the house and I really enjoy meeting so many different people. I would encourage anyone to come along and join in”.
