SEATON: Christmas lunch for Beer’s over 60s

Thursday, 12 December 2013

IT IS said there is no such thing as a free lunch – but Beer’s over 60s might just disagree!
There were 112 of them packed into the Mariners’ Hall on Thursday for the annual Christmas lunch provided by the Women’s Institute.
A sumptuous turkey lunch with all the trimmings – and a complimentary glass of wine – was served up by the Beer Primary School’s Parent Teacher and Friends’ Association with help from several school children.
“It is a great idea, is really well organised and helps get the Christmas season off to a flying start,” said Ian Rangey, who is the scheme manager at Barn- ards Farm retirement/sheltered housing complex.
Once again Beer WI financed the lunch this time through the sale of £2,000 worth of tickets to win a magnificent handmade quilt produced by Jean Bartlett and her team of helpers.
“We have been selling the tickets all year with Ann Robinson and Dee Spence Thomas leading the way,” said WI secretary Sue Ball.
“We have raised enough money to pay for this year’s lunch and probably next year’s as well.”
The meal was rounded off with a play performed by children from Beer Primary School.
