Sunday Lunch Group

Email:Click on the bird
WHERE:Various venues announced at the monthly meeting
WHEN3rd Sunday of the month at 12 noon for 12.30 unless otherwise advised

This group began in January 2020 and there were only 3 outings before Covid-19 restrictions prevented any further lunches. In the 3 months we were operating we went to The Green Tree in Tudhoe, The Hammer and Pincers at Preston-le-Skerne, and Bishop Auckland Golf Club.

Carolyn coordinates the dates and organisers while members of the group volunteer to organise lunches each month of the year. The organisers make a provisional booking at their venue of choice (usually for 12 people) with final numbers confirmed to the venue about a week before. Each organiser needs to have a slide for the monthly meeting for the 2 months before the lunch date as well as a sign-up form at the monthly meeting to gather names. Christine or Pam can help with slide/booking form preparation if needed.

Organisers needed for 2022 - please add your name to the form on the Sunday Lunch table alongside the month you will organise.

Members make their own way to the venues and arrange car sharing if needed. Each member pays for his/her own meal plus an appropriate tip.

Since the group started up again after lockdown we have been to The Dun Cow in Sedgefield in September, The Copper Mine in Crook in October, and Bishops Lodge, Toronto in November with no lunch booked for December.

In January we went to Bishop Auckland Golf Club and in February to The Bay Horse, Middridge. March was Thomas Wright House, Byers Green and April was at The Copper Mine, Crook. May was The Hammer & Pincers at Preston-le-Skerne and June was cancelled as not enough people wanting to go.
