CREECH St Michael hosted a free fish and chips lunch for the over 60s in the village hall - with the oldest guest aged 104.

More than 110 locals enjoyed the community event, with lunch cooked by mobile caterer Layz Ricks.

The village wall was donated for free and the food was served up by student ambassadors from Creech St Michael School.

Afterwards there was prize bingo run by Cllr David Fothergill, with prizes including wine, chocolate and meat.

It is the third time the lunch has been provided for locals and it is funded by the proceeds from Creech Party in the Park and organised by volunteers.

Creech Party in the Park has been running since 2013 and is a family-friendly community event with a daytime fete and nighttime music festival.

The spokesperson for the organising committee said: “It’s wonderful that the schoolchildren helped out again as it's fantastic to see the different generations coming together.

"We are pleased that Creech Party in the Park continues to be a successful event which allows us to put proceeds back into the village. However, the organisers will take a break from the main event in 2024 for a rest.”

In addition to organising the free lunch, Creech Party in the Park has also funded and organised a free cream tea for the over 60s, a family Coronation cream tea and village clean up and barbeque days.

Funds have also been donated to the primary school, pre-school and Baptist church for children’s clubs. It has also provided park benches and funded tree planting.
