Mayor gives backing to lunch initiative…
October 30, 2023
A new lunchtime initiative is offering the simple pleasure of eating a tasty meal in good company to local residents dealing with social isolation.
Many people, especially older residents living alone, eat every meal in silence, maybe with the TV on for company and rarely getting the opportunity to enjoy a chat with friends while tucking into some good food.
From November 6th the Brockwell Seam is inviting older residents to call in on a Monday lunchtime, between 12noon and 3pm where they can enjoy good company along with good food.
The initiative is the idea of landlord David Embleton who said “We have created a special Golden Years menu, aimed at those with a smaller appetite and main courses are from £5.99 and as well as offering value for money we hope people will find the Monday sessions an enjoyable social occasion.”
And the Food and Friendship lunch club has received the full backing of Cramlington Town Mayor, Cllr Helen Morris who said “Many of us regularly eat our meals with other people. It’s an opportunity to relax, enjoy each other’s company and chat about a whole range of subjects including the food itself. But it is something that many of us take for granted and I think this new initiative from the Brockwell Seam is great. It offers a chance to make some new friends and enjoy tasty and affordable food at the same time. I hope lots of residents go along and give it a go.”
