Soup Lunches


Soup lunches are a great way to meet fellow members. Why not carpool with a May Court friend in your zone, offer a ride to a new member, or bring a member you haven’t seen for a while? Come for good company and interesting soups and sweets.  A choice of soup, bread, cheese and dessert, with tea or coffee is always offered.

The next Soup Lunch will be held in September, 2017.
