On Friday 31st May, members of Blandford Methodist Church Lunch Club said thank you and goodbye to Tam Stewart. For the past three and a half years Tam has supervised those on Community Pay Back as they have prepared, cooked and served up delicious meals for an average of forty people per session. Tam has introduced many new workers to the art of setting up and the laying of tables, demonstrating how chairs and tables should be stacked away after the lunch, whilst reminding them that the floors needed to be swept and washed and rubbish disposed of in the correct bins in the Church car park. All this alongside a host of other task that need to be completed. Tam undertook his responsibility in a quiet, calm but firm manner and was always scrupulously fair. He was at ease with both workers and lunch club folk and he enjoyed a good laugh. Tam was the first to admit he was not a cook and he remembers how on one specific occasion he made a big mistake, serving parsley sauce with gammon. That didn't go down to well. On a more serious note, Tam will be very much missed and we wish him all the best for the future.
