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.
