Free Sunday Roast
It has been a year since the Boxted Methodist Silver Band began offering a free Sunday Lunch.
The events have been a success, with people coming from Boxted, Horkesley and Bramford.Every month, there has been a lucky plate – one lucky diner has won a prize!The pork we often serve (there’s always a choice with chicken or beef) is free-range – produced in Assington, the veg, depending on the season sometimes, have been grown by a bandsman too!We don’t have many opportunities to be together in our busy society. For our next year, we would love to welcome even more people from our own community to lunch.If you worry you won’t know anyone, we’re a friendly bunch, we’ll give you a warm welcome.
Please note that if you would like to come, but don’t have transport, we can collect you and bring you back home afterwards.
After lunch, if you’d like to, you’re welcome to join us for the band service across in the chapel. It’s normally a themed service with a mixture of hymns, readings and pieces played by the band for your enjoyment. Music can range from traditional marches to Pirates of the Caribbean or even the music of Oasis!
If you would like to come along, or ask a question about the meal, please phone Kevin Blundell on 07917324431.
Our next two dates are the first Sunday in June and July. We have two months off in August (for holiday) and also September as our service is at the village hall. We will recommence in October.
Please come! Bring your family! Tell a friend!
We do hope to see you there. Together, we’d love to make our second year even more successful and community focused.
All bookings to be made through Kevin, on 07917 324431 by the Wednesday beforehand.
In the first instance please contact Ian Alvey on telephone number 01206 272686.
