‘People arrive as strangers and leave as friends’

There was a full house at May’s Food with Friends community meal at St Catherine’s Church, Gorseinon, which included a performance by pupils from the local primary school.

The monthly events are organised by community leaders including representatives from the local council, local area coordinator Ronan Ruddy, and members from local churches across Gorseinon.

Curate of St Catherine’s, Rev Dr Adrian Morgan, said: “The support from month to month has been astonishing, and the incredibly encouraging thing for us is that the support isn’t diminishing, in fact it’s growing.

“Strangers are coming, they’re eating together and they’re leaving as friends. That’s bringing people together, making the community stronger, and that’s something to celebrate.”

The next meal will take place on June 17 from 11am to 1pm and everyone’s welcome.
