Redwoods Lunch Club

Our award winning Monday lunch club, based in the Redwoods building (old library), opened its doors In December 2012.  


We run on Mondays between 10:00 am and 1:30 pm. On the 1st, 3rd and if there is one the 5th Monday, a home cooked soup and a dessert is provided. On the 2nd and 4th Mondays there is a main meal, supplied by Cabbages and Kings at The Mix, which includes both a meat and vegetarian options. A dessert, prepared by our volunteers, or fresh fruit is also included.

Having started with 15 diners we now regularly get numbers of 40+ aged between 55 and 95. There is always a range of activities available, including talks, quizzes, an exercise class, bingo, live music, etc.

Red Gables projects are dementia friendly and our building is fully wheelchair accessible with a disabled toilet available. A carer should also attend with those needing a higher level of assistance, but our friendly volunteer team will be on hand to lend a hand where appropriate and make everyone welcome. 

Soup days are £3 per head, with the other two being £6 per head. We can work around allergies and provide alternatives where needed.

All are welcome, but booking is essential.
