2nd Community Lunch

Just over 40 villagers from Therfield and Kelshall came together at the Lunch Club on 12th February, enjoying socialising with one another over a glass of wine and a meal. To spread the love close to Valentine’s Day, each participant received a chocolate heart and one of Jacquie’s delicious home made heart shaped biscuits with their drink at the end of the meal. Table decorations also reflected the Valentine’s theme as did the raffle with Jimmy Laing holding the first ticket to be called and choosing the champagne and chocolates! Thank you to all who purchased raffle tickets as we raised £120 to support future Lunch Clubs. Thank you too to the dedicated team of helpers, Sylvia Drury, Debbie Jeffries, Jacquie Kier, Linda Laing and Ann Murty. Thanks also to Joshua Jones for allowing us to use the Chapel and especially to Julie Harvey for all her help. We are delighted that so many villagers are attending these events; there are already 30 people signed up for the next Lunch Club on the 25th March. We will also be holding a VE themed Lunch Club on 13th May. If you would like to book a place for either date please contact Linda Laing on 07725 550534 or Jill Aberdour on 07979 058231. Cost is £5 per head.

Community Lunch

The inaugural Community Lunch Club was a great success with nearly 40 participants 
from Therfield and Kelshall enjoying a festive meal and a convivial chat on the 4th December. 
We were also pleased to welcome the children from Therfield school who delighted us with 
their seasonal singing and chatting with lunch clubbers. With the assistance of a great 
team of helpers and the good offices of the Chapel we have no doubt that this will become a 
regular fixture in the community calendar. The next event is on the 12th February and over half 
of the participants booked and paid before they left the first event. Thank you to everyone for
making this a memorable time. 
If you would like to attend on the 12th February please contact either Jill Aberdour, 07979 058231,
jaberdour@aol.com or Linda Laing, 07725 550534, linda97laing@gmail.com

Despite the efforts of the Parish Councillor responsible for highways; Clive Close to get gullies and drains cleared by County Council parts of the village are awash after yesterdays rain and some residents can’t get out of their homes.

But as some one said- “its’ one way to slow traffic down!!”
