Jim Booty is in sole charge of Home Nursing Aids and is Co-ordinator for the Community Car Scheme - telling us drivers where to go - but it is the lunch club that more concerns me.

The cooks would appreciate the drivers to answer their invitation in good time too. One year we bought and cooked meals for several who did not attend - we do not wish to waste food nor time, please.
