To tantalise your taste buds

We deliver hot three course meals and a sandwich supper to older members of the Lytham St Annes community for a cost of £8. If you have someone in your family, or a friend who would benefit from a healthy, freshly cooked meal once or twice a week please refer them through our Make a Referral page.

Here are just some of the meals we have prepared, cooked and delivered by our volunteers over the last couple of weeks: –

Courgette and Pea soup, Lasagne and chunky potato wedges, brioche frangipane apple pudding and cream, tuna and cucumber sandwich and an apple

Broccoli and Pesto soup, Roast chicken, gravy, stuffing, roast potatoes, and roasted mixed vegetables, lemon curd and pistachio roulade, egg mayonnaise sandwich and a slice of melon.

Leek and potato soup, Liver sausage bacon and onions, mashed potatoes and green beans, pineapple upside down sponge and custard, cheese and tomato sandwich and an orange.

You may know someone who hasn’t got a big appetite and we can deliver a soup and sandwich for £4 or two soups for £4. Please get in touch for a chat. If someone has a special dietary requirement we do our utmost to try and accommodate everyone.

For only £15, our Christmas Day menu includes Salmon and Dill Soup or Prawn Cocktail, Roast Turkey with all the trimmings, Christmas pudding or trifle, a cream cheese bagel and Stollen or Christmas cake. (Local restaurants / pubs are charging £50+ per person for a similar menu.)

Self-isolating

The following is taken from a Facebook post and used with permission.

I’m going to explain Boris’s method for anybody who doesn’t quite get it, I’m not saying if I agree with his plan or not but here goes…..

His plan is to segregate all vulnerable people (older, ill and at risk) – let’s call this group A.

Anyone looking after the older,ill and at risk can be group B.

The general population generally healthy can be group C.

Group C needs to go about it’s business keeping the country moving, kids at school, us at work.

Group B looks after group A and avoids contact with C.

Group C is allowed to contract the virus and because it’s generally healthy it can cope with it better than group A (and starts to create herd immunity).

Group A and B are almost self isolating without the virus to avoid putting strain on the NHS and reducing the risk of getting the virus and then needing the NHS.

Group C (the generally healthy) go through the cycle of contracting the virus, self isolating and being looked after by healthy family members, friends and the local community.
Anyone who has complications gets looked after by the NHS while groups A and B are kept away. The NHS are not strained by A and B while its looking after complicated cases in C, those who really need their help.

As group C comes full circle and recovers it divides into groups that take group B’s position looking after group A therefore then allowing group B to go though the cycle.

With B and C through the cycle,
A is free to have NHS to itself because B and C are now clear from illness and infection and hopefully have a degree of immunity from getting it again this season…..

Hope this helps.

Everyone has a job to do for the above to work.

Stay safe and keep washing those hands and let’s pull together and help each other through this, we are resilient brits after all!!

Lancashire Memories

At today’s POPPIES group we enjoyed reminiscing with Jimmy O’Donnell. We had many laughs and tears as we remembered the good old days. Jimmy brought with him many props stirring memories of our childhoods. Memories are so important and precious and stir different feelings and emotions. Our brains are a muscle and it’s good to keep exercising it through remembering, singing, photos, films, news articles. Our brains store so many memories, apparently 2.7 billion books worth.
