Christmas Day Lunch in Fetcham

Dozens of guests and volunteers filled Fetcham Village Hall for the Meeting Room charity Christmas Day lunch.

Volunteers from the charity, which works with vulnerable, socially isolated and homeless people, welcomed each guest with a gift, before Christmas lunch was served at 12.30.

A network of drivers made sure that those living in areas such as Epsom, Ashtead and Leatherhead could attend and return home at the end of the afternoon.

One of the volunteers, Stuart Cursley, said: "The event is a true community occasion. The interaction between guests and volunteers and enjoyment for all was very special. Everyone involved made the hall a magical energised place on Christmas Day. Graham Peddie, who started the event many years ago, would like to thank all those who contributed in so many ways."

Many local companies and organisations contributed food and drink, including firefighters at Fetcham Fire Station who helped cook some of the turkeys.

The lunch has become a fixture in the Fetcham Village Diary and Graham looks forward to seeing everyone next year .
