Calderdale Life: Wee Sam lunch proves to be as popular as ever

THE annual Wee Sam pensioner's Christmas lunch took place at West End Golf Club.

Originally set up and funded by Samuel Webster's brewery, Courage and Scottish and Newcastle kept up the tradition until 2004 when funding ran out.

Not wanting to lose their get together, The Wee Sam pensioners decided to fund the meal for old colleagues and friends themselves.

It has gone from strength to strength with over 90 people attending this year's event.

As well as a meal there was a special raffle with winners taking home bottles of rose and white wine complete with exclusively-designed Wee Sam labels.
