ABOUT 50 people enjoyed a two-course Christmas lunch at the Henley Over-60s Club on Monday.
Chef Marek Moskaluk served roast turkey with all the trimmings followed by Christmas pudding and custard.
Nine turkeys were donated by the Henley Lions Club, who received them from the Copas Partnership.
The guests were entertained by Dennis Saunders, who played the clarinet, and pianist Tim Valentine. There was also a raffle and a visit by the Mayor Lorraine Hillier.
The lunch is held at the club in the Greys Road car park every year.
Co-manager Lynda Mortimer said: ?It?s nice to all get together and celebrate Christmas. A lot of members don?t have families so they look forward to this. They are waited on, they get a nice lunch and there?s no washing up to do.? Connie Butt, the other manager, said: ?A lot of these people are on their own at Christmas so this is a chance for everybody to get together. It brings joy and comradeship.?
Phyllis Strange, 81, of Abrahams Road, Henley, said: ?I always look forward to it. I like to be around lots of people and they always put on a good lunch here.?
Sheila Plumridge, 77, who lives at Swiss Farm, said: ?It?s lovely ? it?s makes you feel Christmassy.?
