Peter Lilley showed his support for the great work of Hertfordshire Community Meals last week as he joined them for their lunchtime delivery on Friday, visiting clients who benefit from their ‘Meals on Wheels’ service.
“Hertfordshire Community Meals is a splendid example of a social enterprise, providing an invaluable social service in an innovative and enterprising way,” said Peter. “The clients that I met were all extremely grateful for the service they receive, which goes far beyond the basic delivery of meals including checks on people’s wellbeing.
“I applaud the work that Hertfordshire Community Meals does to make life easier for those who require their services – the work of their staff and volunteers deserves to be recognised and appreciated. There are definitely lessons that we can learn from this model for the delivery of other public services.”
