Holiday Lunch Clubs- July 2020
This free take away service for children launched during the school holidays in 2020 was warmly welcomed by both parents and children while they enjoyed the lovely weather in Jubilee Fields over the summer. Food was served from the Eric Payne Community Centre every Wednesday and Friday from 12:30-1:30pm on a first come, first served basis.
Alcester Town Council are very grateful for the support of Anita Hellyer, Catering Manager at St. Benedict’s High School and 6th Form and her team of wonderful and dedicated volunteers. Anita also opened The Depot every day during the Christmas 2020 and February Half Term holidays 2021 to welcome local children and provide them with a lovely hot lunch, drink and snack. Many other treats had also been provided by Alcester Food Bank and gifted by local residents.
The Town Council are delighted to be able to support this worthwhile and important activity, adding an element of happiness and community spirit to the lives of those families who are supported.
2023– Cost of Living Hubs were added to the lunch clubs in the spring whilst funding allowed.
