A LUNCH club for elderly people is being forced to move as its South Norwood base could be demolished.
The Pop-in Lunch Club, run by South Norwood and Woodside Community Association, will be moving to a new SE25 base towards the turn of this year.
Karen Jewitt, former councillor for Woodside, runs the lunch club and was told its current home at the United Reformed Church hall in Cobden Road may not be there next year.
Ms Jewitt, who is now Labour councillor for Thornton Heath, said: "Well, the church is falling down really but I think it is a bit bad that they didn't come to us and give us any consultation or anything, especially as we've been here a long time.
"We'll move to another location in South Norwood, there shouldn't be too many problems. I think I have already sorted a new location and the service will keep going, so no one should be worried."
The club provides hot, home-cooked lunches to senior citizens up to three times a week, helping some who struggle to cook and some who just want somewhere to socialise.
