New venue for Warwick's community Christmas lunch

There will be a new venue for this year's community Christmas lunch in Warwick.

Members of the Warwick community will be teaming up for a third year to help those who would otherwise face Christmas alone.

For the last two years, Terry Morris, who is also a town and district councillor, and his wife Liz Jackson, along with a team of volunteers have held a Christmas Day lunch at the Court House in Jury Street.

Both previous events each saw around 80 residents attend where they has a three-course meal and entertainment.

Following on from the success of last two years the couple will be bringing it back again this Christmas at a new venue - Warwick Hall at Warwick School.
