Lunch at the Lion

During the week before Christmas our Churches Together Group, ‘Lunch at The Lion’, met for their Christmas buffet at The Red Lion in Silsden. Co-hosted by Embrace and the local Anglican Vicar this group has been good fun right from the start and very welcomed by all who attended.
One regular said “I just wanted something for my husband to do with other men in a place in which he felt comfortable to enjoy his ‘man time’” She added “it’s relaxing for me as someone else does the cooking and washing up which gives me a much needed break”.
During 2019, when the Embrace project comes to an end, the group will continue to meet but only once a month at Springbank Care Home where the Activities Organiser will organise lunches for them with residents at the care home – this is a nice way of local community being able to visit and make a small difference for people in care, especially for those with dementia.
