Background to the Club

Over the last few months as part of our village plan consultation process, some locals identified a wish for a luncheon club. They wanted one that compliments Marsh Baldon, Berinsfield, and Clifton Hampden luncheon club

Amazingly, three months later, thanks to the research and initiative of Georgia Gillett and a great team of organisers and collaborators, an idea was followed through to delivery.

On Monday 12th March 2012, thirty two people of mixed ages, working and retired, from Clifton Hampden, Marsh Baldon, and of course Nuneham Courtenay attended the new luncheon club. We even had guests who used to live in Nuneham Courtenay, come back for this event.

With excellent settings and home cooked food, a really lovely atmosphere developed, and the room was filled with laughter.  We had guest speakers invited to talk about their successes in setting up a luncheon club ? thank you for your support.

Lovely raffle prizes were enjoyed by twenty winners, and a special thanks to Emma Walker for the beautiful bouquet donated from her lovely flower shop in Nuneham Courtenay. Also, thanks to Ginny Baker for all the beautiful table flower designs. Thanks also to the village hall committee for their support in this event. Thanks to all in the launch team who donated all the food, enabling the lunch to be free for all.

After lots of socializing, we concluded the event with a questionnaire filled out by everyone present, as to whether they wanted to continue with a luncheon club, and if they wanted to volunteer to help run the club, prepare the food, help serve, or come to the club as a member. 

Wonderfully, as a result, we have a team who volunteered in the roles of coordinator, treasurer, secretary, cooks, and helpers.

We had hoped that different folk from the ones who ran the launch would come forward, so as to expand our ever vibrant and growing community ? and indeed they did!  You are welcome to be part of this, either as volunteers or as members.

We will keep you informed of our next steps and the year?s planned dates, for future luncheon clubs. 

So well done everyone, especially the launch team and helpers; Georgia, Sheila, Corinna, Jas, Ginny, Sally, Don, Nettie, Jenny, and Lyndsey.
