Only services that are currently available during COVID-19 are listed in the directory.

In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available.


The Ripple Project

Covid-19 Service UPDATE...

If you wish to book for the lunch club, call us for details.

Lunch Club is now open to existing members only. If you are a currently registered member you will have been contacted by now - and welcomed back with a hearty cheer and a hot meal!

Normal service details...

The Ripple Lunch Club runs Monday to Friday in the Restalrig Lochend Community Hub, for local people over 65. A fresh cooked hot meal is prepared in the Hub café kitchen, providing nutritious tasty food at a fair price.

The Club runs Monday - Friday, 11:30am to 12:45pm, and for many, attendance at the Club provides a focus for their day and an opportunity to get out the house to have a hot meal while enjoying the company of others. All sitting together, and with regular volunteers serving meals, the club has a warm and supportive atmosphere as well as being in the heart of the Hub, in the café.

Meals cost £4.50 per day for a two course meal with tea/coffee and biscuits. We ask that meals are pre-booked and, where possible, paid in advance however we can be flexible.

Transport is available for people living in Restalrig, Lochend and Craigentinny for a small contribution of 50p per day. Spaces are limited and must be booked in advance.
