St Paul’s Solo diners

At last the Solo Diners met up again after Lockdown.

  “On Sunday August 15th, I was delighted to be invited to join the solo diners, a group who normally eat alone joining together for Sunday lunch in a local hostelry.  This was the first time it’s been possible to meet together due to COVID restrictions.

After the Sunday morning service 17 of us met at the Derby Arms, Witherslack. Sue Fleetwood had arranged the lunch and the arrangements were excellent, with a large list of what we had pre- ordered and the cost.  She has to be congratulated on her efficiency.
The food was delicious: a choice of starters from soup, beetroot and goats cheese salad or whitebait, and for main course roast beef, roast lamb, scampi, fish and chips, and a chickpea spiced pie.

I was fortunate to meet new friends and reconnect with old ones; the chat was non-stop and very interesting, until the food and wine arrived.  The Yorkshire puddings were to be seen to be believed.

We couldn’t believe how busy the hotel was, with every table taken –   just like normal times again.

I would like to thank everyone for their company and friendship – a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
God Bless
