Hot food and a warm welcome are waiting every Monday evening, thanks to a new free Supper Club initiative in St Annes funded by Fylde Council and run by staff and volunteers. 

The free Supper Club takes place every Monday between 4:00pm – 5:30pm at the Well Community Centre, 92 St Albans Road, Lytham St Annes, FY8 1UZ. Everyone is welcome, whether you’re looking for a fresh cooked meal, some helpful advice about what troubles you, or just a friendly place to relax. 

As well as providing wholesome food at no cost to the attendees and a comfortable atmosphere in which to socialise, the Supper Club is a great way for people to access signposting to services that can help them. 

Cllr Chris Dixon, Lead Member for Social Wellbeing, said: “The first few weeks of the Supper Club have been very well received. People are already telling us how much they appreciate a place they feel welcome, where they can just chat and enjoy a meal.” 

“Programmes such as this benefit some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. It’s not just about supper – it is about meeting people, sharing worries and finding out about help available. I’m delighted that Fylde Council are funding this initiative.” 

The Supper Club initiative is currently funded through Fylde Council and Lancashire County Council, and the organisers aim to eventually secure further funding to support their ambitions going forward. 

Potential plans include introducing drop-in sessions with support agencies such as Citizens Advice Fylde, Homestart and the DWP, so attendees can get additional assistance with issues they may be experiencing. 

Another idea under discussion is to develop the Supper Club into a general-purpose hub, potentially open another night of the week, offering an informal social space where people can also get practical assistance with facilities such as a clothes bank. 

More helping hands are always welcome! If you’d like to volunteer and help with the Supper Club, email your details to Siobhán Tweedale at  

If you or someone you know are finding it difficult to make ends meet during the cost-of-living crisis, support is available. Visit the Fylde Council website to access a list of resources and links to support services.
