Celebrate lockdown easing with Cancer Research UK’s community lunch

Jubilee community lunch
The Lyme Regis branch of Cancer Research UK hope to recreate the atmosphere of the Diamond Jubilee community lunch in 2012

MANY Lyme Regis residents will remember the community lunch that was held as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, organised by the Woodmead Halls as part of the celebration to mark this great occasion.

It was considered to be one of the most enjoyable events in the town’s extensive celebrations, attended by the Deputy Lieutenant of Dorset, Minnie Churchill, who lived in Lyme Regis at the time.

It was a real local celebration with many of those who attended wearing red, white and blue.

The Lyme Regis branch of Cancer Research UK is hoping to recapture that atmosphere by celebrating the return to normality after COVID restrictions have hopefully been lifted by staging a ‘Welcome Back’ community lunch.

The event will be held at the halls on Sunday, July 18 from 12noon to 3pm. Tickets for the two-course traditional Sunday roast with a sweet and vegetarian option will cost £8.50 for adults and £6 for children (under 16).

It is intended to make it a real fun occasion with lots of spot prizes and competitions.

The community lunch will be the first event to be organised by the Cancer Research UK committee since going into lockdown in March 2020.

The lunch will be limited to 80 people and tickets are likely to be in great demand. Tickets can be booked by calling the committee chairman, Philip Evans MBE, on 07796 951991.
