Yesterday, we had an amazing final Lunch Club, featuring a delicious Christmas dinner from our expert chef Ismail and a performance from The Basement Crew. As always, nobody could resist a dance! Merry Christmas and we’ll see you on 11th January.
On Wednesday 19 July, our Lunch Club took a trip to the Imperial War Museum. We even managed to enjoy an outdoor picnic, despite the rain! Thank you to our amazing volunteers, Sunara, Tom, Sarah, James & Kenny.
Last Wednesday, a small contingent of the Lunch Club took an expedition to the Young Vic as part of their Two Boroughs outreach programme. We saw Happy Days by Samuel Beckett, a largely one woman play with the excellent Juliet Stevenson. We had a great day out, the weather held out long enough for us to get this photo on the balcony:
Janet and Joan agree that they “enjoyed it very much, thought the acting was superb – just wish there was a proper ending!”
On 12th December, to entertain our Lunch Clubbers and to squeeze an extra rehearsal in before their Christmas concert at Union Chapel, the Choir with No Name performed a short set before joining us for lunch.
Enthusiasm was shown by all, for all the Christmas classics from I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard to The Power of Love by Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
Taken for the annual report, but it might not make the cut. Enjoy!
The last 5 months of the Pembroke Lunch Club’s bingo cards are being sent to the National Bingo Archive in Kew. I hope they appreciate them.
