Barker's Meals on Wheels visit

Town MP Greg Barker welcomed the work of local Meals on Wheels staff when he visited the Charter Community Centre as part of national Meals on Wheels week.

Greg met Sheila Stokes and her colleagues from Apetito, the company which operates the Meals on Wheels scheme for many local authorities, and the chefs from the Charter Community Centre. Between them, they provide both a drop-in lunch at the community centre and a delivery service to individuals at home.
