3rd Wednesday HIGH HAM SOCIAL LUNCH
High Ham Village Hall
An opportunity to get together at The Village Hall to catch up with neighbours and friends from the village and further afield.
A dedicated group of volunteers, who have all received their Health and Hygiene Certificates, prepare a hot lunch through the winter months ; favourites are beef casserole or roast chicken wrapped in bacon with all the trimmings . All with freshly cooked vegetables and legendary roast potatoes.
Through the summer months guests enjoy a salad with meats, cheeses, warm home-made quiche, with warm mashed potato or new potatoes or a minted potato salad and a roll!
And always, whatever the weather or season, the puddings are perfection! All home-made and heavenly: especial favourites are the bakewell tart, the pavlova, the crumble always topping fruit from the cooks garden, apple pies, trifles and fresh fruit salad!
There is a waiting list for places and we always serve 50 lunches, this being the upper limit that can be managed with the equipment in the kitchen. Every month we're full and around 80 people attend across the year on a regular basis.
St Andrews PCC secured funding from the Somerset County Council Health and Wellbeing Fund in 2016 to start the club, to buy extra cooking equipment, fund the first lunches and pay for volunteers Health and Safety Training organised by The Angel in Langport (the Benefice's outreach community cafe) .
We are delighted at the success of the social club as part of our mission to support the community. It is established as an invaluable meeting place and has helped reduce rural isolation and loneliness for a good number of folks.
