Community Christmas Lunch registrations now open
Registrations are now open for the 2018 Community Christmas Lunch at the All Seasons Hotel complex.
This free community lunch is for people who might be alone, feel excluded, or are facing financial difficulties to enjoy a great Christmas lunch.
The two course lunch will take place in The Conservatory at the All Seasons Hotel from 12pm until 2pm. Registrations are essential and need to be made by Friday December 7, 2018.
Bookings can be made by phoning the City on 5434 6000 or visiting the City’s Lyttleton Terrace office.
Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Margaret O’Rourke said the event was always very well attended.
“Christmas can be a stressful time for some people especially those who do not have any family or friends to share the day with and the lunch is a great opportunity to connect with other members of the community and feel part of the festivities,” Cr O’Rourke said.
“I encourage people who would like to attend the lunch to register as soon as possible because places get booked up very quickly.”
“It’s going to be a great day for people to enjoy good food and hospitality thanks to the generosity of the All Seasons owners.”
All Seasons owners Jeanine and Tom Hedley said they were looking forward to hosting the Community Christmas Lunch for the fifth time.
“We’re very pleased to be able to again host this special event for the Greater Bendigo community – it’s always a lovely occasion enjoyed by all our guests,” Jeanine said.
The lunch will be served at 12 noon sharp on Christmas Day and includes cold meats, salads and dessert with traditional festive trimmings. Non-alcoholic drinks will also be provided.
