The Luncheon Club is for those living on their own and residing within the area covering Banham, New Buckenham, Quidenham, Eccles and Wilby as well as Old Buckenham. It provides a ‘home-cooked’ meal in Old Buckenham Village Hall every two weeks throughout the year for around 30 to 40 people. Many of those attending do not normally get out much or get a chance to talk with others of their generation.

The Club was set up in 1981. Members pay anominal fee for their lunches (£3.50 now but 75p when things started 32 years ago).

There are also four outings held each year where members are taken out by coach to some interesting location and then have a meal out before returning home.

Anyone interested in coming to the Club, or who knows someone who could benefit by coming along, should contact Debbie Thomas on 01953 860959 or 0778 775 6407. You can also make contact by email to  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
