Social Dining and Luncheon Clubs
Sycamore Dining bring elderly and vulnerable people together to eat and socialise over an affordable meal. The cafe lounge at Foxton Gardens is open Monday to Friday lunchtime serving between 12 and 1pm. Please note these need to be booked in advance and on arrival at Foxton Gardens you need to ring the Sycamore Dining bell located in the entrance.
We also supply luncheon clubs held in community rooms of independent living schemes for the elderly around Nottingham.
Our joint challenge is to get lonely and socially isolated people out of their homes and eating together, at a price they can afford.
To enable more people to experience social dining, Sycamore Dining prepare and cook meals in their Foxton Gardens kitchen, and serve them at luncheon clubs in community rooms within independent living communities for the elderly or disadvantaged. We work with Nottingham City Homes, Broxtowe Council, Housing 21 and St Peters Church, Ruddington.
Luncheon club attendance may be restricted by local Covid-19 guidance and must be booked locally, in advance. We serve a fixed menu at each event, offering dietary needs when required.
