Feeding the masses

That's the third weekly Lent Lunch over and done. Tables are cleared, dishes washed and crockery put away. The meal, at £3 per person, consists of home made soup and a warm bread roll, cheese and biscuits, tea or coffee.

The first week 17 people had a choice of Tomato or Winter veg soups. Last week 18 people had a choice of Chicken & leek or Beef & tomato soup. Today 13 people dined on either Crofter's thick vegetable or Chicken, mushroom, spring onion and farfalle pasta soup.

Monies raised for the charities we're supporting, after expenses, has so far been over £50 per week. Two more to go, and no-one's had food poisoning yet!!!


  1. Why is it always Lent Lunches?

    It's a bit like Women's World Day of Prayer - 10:30 am, all welcome....

    Mothers of small children and working people need not apply.

  2. Good point - though we do have our monthly Shared Suppers, 7.30 p.m. for 8.00 p.m., usually not starting to demolish the food until 8.15 p.m. just to give late-comers a chance.

    Lent Lunches seem one of those eternal traditions, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
