Crook and Willington

Come Eat Together is a great way of getting out and socialising. People who come to our lunches find that they are chatting away to the people next to them and signing up for activities and before they know it they are never at home. We have a great range of activities in the Crook and Willington area including lunch clubs, shopping clubs and gardening sessions.

Pub Lunch Club
Join us for our monthly lunch at the Carriage in Crook where you can enjoy a two course lunch, followed by a pub quiz. It’s a great afternoon out in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. We have recently moved here from the Kings Head (they now close at lunch time) and we would like to thank the Carriage for making us welcome in our new venue. You can see a short film about this lunch club below.


Dining Circles
We are helping older people come together for a lunch and opportunity to socialise local to their home. You are welcome to pop along to one of our monthly  dining circles held at Wheatbottom or Dovedale Community Hubs or ask us to help you set one close to you. Generally a two course lunch is on offer and it’s a great way to make new friends. 

Wear Valley shopping club
If you struggle to get to the supermarkets, our shopping club might be able to help. Wear Valley shopping club, runs fortnightly and  can get you from your door to the larger supermarkets in Bishop Auckland on an accessible bus. Take advantage of a wide choice of supermarkets, help with heavy shopping  and there’s also time to have a cuppa and socialise.

Grow, Eat and Chat at Roddymoor Allotments Coffee Morning is your chance to learn to grow your own vegetables. Running on the first Wednesday of every month, the allotment has a beautiful community garden and room. Help tend a small raised bed but if you don’t want to get your hands dirty, it’s a chance to get together for a cuppa and a chat.
