A new luncheon club will be launched at West Bradford Village Hall as a result of Ribble Valley Borough Council granting funding.
An action group found that a large number of people living alone in the West Bradford area, as well as many more, would benefit from being able to meet up and enjoy the company of others.
The community volunteers identified a number of people who might enjoy a hot lunch once a month in the convivial surrounding of the village hall.
Around 20 villagers will help run the club, with the first lunch taking place on April 27th, at a cost of £5 for two courses.
Anyone who is interested is asked to call 01200 426639 or 01200 427169.
