A Darby and Joan menu

The Darby and Joan Club in Market Lavington provided an opportunity for social contact between elderly local folk, with a range of activities. At the museum, we have a little menu card for a lunchtime meal in 1982.

Inside, we see the fare on offer, still with a Christmassy flavour.

The event took place in the Powner Hall, the ‘hut’ behind the Congregational Chapel/Trinity Church building, built in 1968.

For more information on this building, named after one of the church’s pastors, see Dedicating the Powner Hall and A dinner treat for the Congregational men, which has a photo of the Rev. Bertram Powner.
