Pub Lunch Clubs

The Pub Lunch Club project was set up to tackle social isolation and loneliness among our ageing population; especially in rural areas where there are few local services and poor public transport links. It’s aimed at the over 65s and especially those who may have been missing out on regular social contact.

The Pub Lunch clubs are predominately hosted by pubs who are often the hub of a rural community. They offer an affordable two courses for around £7.00 or £8.00, depending on the venue. The clubs are very much community based, each with a local volunteer organiser, through whom bookings must be made.

Social exclusion among the elderly knows no geographic boundaries and we are always looking for new venues right across the county. Some communities have been so keen to be involved that they’ve helped us come up with alternative venues where there is no village pub.

The Pub Lunch Project was suspended during lockdown but is now cautiously resuming. Over the coming months we are working with a number of communities to support the relaunch of their Pub Lunch Club.

If you would like to find out more or would like to be involved please contact Lew Headley.  (t) 01844 617229
