The Lunch Group had been a successful and enjoyable group for several years. Members used to meet once a month for lunch at a pub, restaurant or café within a reasonable radius of Ashbourne, and sometimes visited an interesting site in the locality. Unfortunately, the group became inactive in late 2017 when the previous leader was unable to continue in that role. In early 2018, the committee tried to revive the group as there appeared to be sufficient interest from members. However, only 4 members booked to participate in the first lunch arranged by the committee, & that lunch had to be cancelled. Therefore for the time being, the committee assume there is lack of real interest in a Lunch Group.

It could work well again if several members (whether previous participants in the group or not) are willing to take turns in organising places to eat, collecting the meal choices and then passing on the list to the chosen pub/café/restaurant. Members could take on this role individually or in pairs - maybe they would only need to do it once a year.

Peter Worboys, our Group Co-ordinator, is well-placed to give advice as the Walking Group which he leads always meet at a pub and its members have lunch there after the walk has finished.

If at some time in the future, a reasonable number of members decide amongst themselves that they are sufficiently interested in reviving the Lunch Group & coordinating a programme, please contact Peter preferably by email (click on the blue envelope) or at a Monthly Meeting.
