The Big Christmas Lunch and Nairn 101

Morag and Helena told the Gurn:

"Nairn 101 is a community enhancement initiative, with a view to Gathering together curious people of Nairn and local area, to think, be and do something more - exploring what is possible, exchanging stimulating ideas, challenging pre-conceptions, creating new awareness.  How much fun can we have being ourselves and changing the world? Lets see!

Nairn101 launched on 18 September with an event at The Little Theatre in Fishertown, where we enjoyed some amazing speakers, and also heard from other fabulous speakers from TED talks (online) - inspiring ideas, experiences, thoughts, insights.    One of the ideas hatched  was to hold a Big Lunch in the community, to get people together round a table to talk and know each other more  and thereby contribute to a happy, healthy, connected community.

At our in-between get-together on Friday 13 November, ideas gelled for a Big Christmas Lunch, for anyone who wanted to come - for whatever reason.   We had heard that the United Reformed Church was already hosting coffees, lunches and community activities, including a Christmas Lunch, so it seemed perfect in that there is already a precedent, plus the space is fabulous - light, bright and open.   We are delighted that it fits for everyone!

So we are excited about offering a lunch open to all - free, sit down and tasty - donated by our generous community - for anyone who would enjoy a true spirit of Christmas, being present together - whether people are alone, wondering about cost of feeding themselves or their family, or simply wanting to do a different or something more  Christmas!  All welcome, and anything is possible! Including take-away for neighbors, family members or anyone who would enjoy or be grateful for nourishment on Christmas Day.  If youd like to bring contribution to the meal, please do!  And who knows what is possible?"
