Annual over 60’s luncheon at the Inn on the Lake
For over 36 years, local residents from the Eden area have held their over 60’s luncheon at the Inn on the Lake in Ullswater, which is organised by Jean Smith. Jean started the annual luncheon by having a swear box in the Hikers Bar, now known as Ramblers Bar situated in the grounds of the hotel, which over the years has helped to fund these events.
On Wednesday 2nd December, 80 local residents, including a gentleman of 103 years of age, arrived at the Inn on the Lake to enjoy a 3 course Christmas lunch in the stunning AA rosette Lake View restaurant, which was followed by 28 pupils from Patterdale School singing Christmas songs to the group.
Inn on the Lake’s General Manager, Gary Wilson said “On behalf of all the staff at the Inn on the Lake, we are really honoured to host this yearly event for the villagers, with the help of local companies Ribble Farm Foods and Pioneer who supply the turkeys and Christmas puddings.”
