The Fylde Community Hub Supper Club has been welcoming people on a Monday evening with a warm meal and a place to meet people, and residents have been sharing their stories about how much it has meant to them. 

Three service users have highlighted how the warm and welcoming atmosphere has helped them socialise and save money on utilities, as well as boosting their confidence and mental health and wellbeing.  

Stephen, Wendy and Sue spoke of how significant a difference attending the free club and saving money on food and energy has made to their financial situation, and had nothing but praise for the club and the people who provide it. 

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. 

Cllr Chris Dixon, Lead Member for Social Wellbeing, said: “It’s heartening to hear how the Fylde Community Hub Supper Club has been helping people, whether it’s with good food, a warm place to stay, or with advice and signposting to other support services. Just having a place where you feel welcome can make an incredible difference to people’s lives, and I’m pleased that Fylde Council are able to fund this.”  

 Designed for vulnerable and isolated individuals in the community, the Supper Club offers not just nourishing food, but also a supportive environment and meaningful companionship. 

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.
