Having enjoyed many French Sunday Lunches at an auberge, near Boulogne, over the years, I decided to try them in Shelley. Such has been their popularity that they have become a regular annual event at the Village Hall, raising money for a variety of charities.


This was the twentieth, and was attended by 111 people. With donations, £1,258 was raised for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.


People came from way beyond Shelley, Norfolk, Grantham, Preston and regulars from Saddleworth. “On behalf of the gang from over the tops, just to say what a good do it was.” “It was a fantastic day with lovely people.”


Thanks to caterers Simply Splendid Solutions, the youthful team of local waitresses and waiter, and mums and dads who helped to stage the event. Also to our MP, mayor of Kirklees, local councillors, the representative of the charity and everyone who attended to make this a resounding success!


The next French Sunday Sunday Lunch will be held on 12 May 2024 in support of the the newly set up local Veterans’ Hub providing social activities in a safe environment for former service personnel whatever their age.

This year to reduce cost, I request people to bring their own alcoholic drinks
