Lunch Club and Childrens outings

The Welcome Hall runs day trips for its Lunch Club members and its Childrens groups over the course of the summer. The trips are a part of the centers commitment to providing activities for its groups and their members throughout the year, we are partially funded by the Welcome Hall and partly by the purchase of tickets by those members who wish to participate.

The Lunch Club will be travelling to Sidmouth on Friday the 28 th of August, while the Childrens groups, Bright Little Sparks Club and Stage-Rite, will be travelling to Paignton on Sunday 29th of August, with parents and siblings of group members also welcome to participate.

The trips are highly successful despite being at the mercy of the weather, and similar trips may again be scheduled for these groups in the future.

If you would like more information about the groups please check the Weekly Activities page or call 01752 606317


On Christmas Day, Welcome Hall will be opening its doors to residents from the local area and slightly further afield for a spectacular 3 course Christmas Day Luncheon to be hosted by Centre Manager Glynis Lidster and her wonderful team of Volunteers.

Doors open for guests at approximately 12.15pm, with the meal itself scheduled to start at 12.30pm. 

There will be Christmas crackers, festive sing-songs, a 3 course meal and a raffle. This is sure to be an entertaining luncheon for all those who attend.

We will not be charging for this Christmas Day Luncheon, but all donations are gratefully received. All donations received will go towards helping with the running costs of the many community groups run by the Welcome Hall over the following year.


Welcome Hall is proud to have hosted the Queen's Jubilee Events for older people, young people and children in the Devonport area.

Funding has been gratefully received from Plymouth City Social Inclusion Unit and Devonport Community Lands Trust to fund the 2 day event on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd June 2012.
