He would like to en­cour­age peo­ple to ring ahead if they are com­ing, so they have an idea of num­bers, but peo­ple can still just turn up on the day.

A driver and cour­tesy van from Baigent Mo­tors has been pro­vided to trans­port those who can’t get to and from the venue. Those want­ing to use the ser­vice should ring the day be­fore.

They are never short of vol­un­teers, but that doesn’t mean peo­ple shouldn’t get in­volved.

‘‘If any­one wants to come and ex­pe­ri­ence serv­ing, then we would love to have them. It’s the old say­ing of, many hands make light work.’’

He says those who par­take in the lunch are from all walks of life, fam­i­lies, in­di­vid­u­als and grand­par­ents and their grand­chil­dren.

‘‘The peo­ple I would like to have come are kids on the fringes, who just want some­where to spend the day, who for what­ever rea­son can’t be at home. They would be very wel­come.’’

The meal fin­ishes at about 2.30pm, fol­lowed by tea and cof­fee. Turner says peo­ple are wel­come to stay as long as they like.

All in­quiries should go to Mary Lasenby on 888 5100.
