The Christmas Pop-In Lunch is the December event of the ‘Storrington Pop-In Lunch Club’ which meets monthly throughout the year.
Organised by Anne Hayes, the lunch club meets on the first Thursday each month in Storrington Village Hall.
Members are primarily elderly people of the local community.
Storrington & Pulborough District Rotary Club has sponsored and run the Christmas event for many years.
A dedicated team of Rotary wives provides the lunch and other Rotarians help prepare the hall, serve the food, wash up and tidy up afterwards.
Fifty-five guests attended the lunch on Thursday December 5 this year to enjoy a glass of wine and traditional Christmas lunch.
Sixty children from Storrington First School entertained the guests with songs from ‘Jonah - A Fishy Tale’ and Christmas carols.
This year the Pop-In Lunch has welcome additional support from a special Storrington Waitrose grant initiative providing help for vulnerable members of the community.
