Community lunch on the menu as leaders meet

Community leaders from across Gorseinon have come together at St Catherine’s Church to begin planning a free meal for the whole community.

The meal will take place at St Catherine’s Church in Gorseinon and it is being supported by many community groups and by other churches.

It is hoped that the event, which will take place on Thursday, March 2 from 3.30pm to 6pm, will be an opportunity to bring the whole community together. People are welcome to drop in and eat as and when it suits them.

The planning group includes Gorseinon residents, representatives from local supermarkets, as well as town and county councillors and members of local churches. They hope that this will be a monthly event and have encouraged as many people as possible to come along and enjoy a free home-cooked meal and entertainment.

Speaking after the meeting, curate of St Catherine’s Church Rev Dr Adrian Morgan said: “I’m extremely excited to see the whole community getting together to support this important venture. We hope to bring everybody together. It will be a great opportunity for old friendships to be strengthened and for new friendships to be created.”
