Weybridge & Elmbridge News > Elmbridge Meals On Wheels Featured on Hairy Bikers TV Programmes

 

 
Four Week BBC 2 TV Programme Features Elmbridge Meals On Wheels
  Hairy Bikers Brooklands College Weybridge
The Hairy Bikers have thrown a spotlight on the Elmbridge Meals on Wheels service as part of their new series on BBC TWO.
Dave and Si have been working with the cooks and staff of Elmbridge Council's Molesey Centre to highlight that the Great British Institution "Meals on Wheels" can still be a vibrant and modern service fit for purpose in the 21st Century.
 
During the filming of the four part series that is due to be aired commencing on the 13th September, the Duchess of Cornwall, an honorary member of the National Association of Care Caterers, visited the Centre to meet with volunteers, Meals on Wheels Customers and staff. The Duchess contributed a family fish pie recipe for the Hairy Bikers to use as part of the new menu.
 
Elmbridge Meals On Wheels Volunteers Needed Meals on Wheels started during World War II to provide hot meals to families in Wellyn affected by the Luftwaffe bombing raids. Sixty years on the services have spread across the UK providing a hot and nutritional meal to people unable to cook for themselves.
This essential service allows individuals to remain independent in their homes and also provides peace of mind that someone will be popping in on a daily basis to say hello and make sure everything is okay.
 
The Elmbridge Meals on Wheels service has been established for 40 years and provides meals from the Council's Centres for the Community which are delivered to older people's homes by volunteer drivers. In the last year alone 59,887 meals were provided to Elmbridge residents. Meals On Wheels Elmbridge Volunteers
The Hairy Bikers have revamped the Meals on Wheels menus, introducing delicious new recipes made with fresh ingredients. Their other aim was to recruit voluntary delivery drivers and kitchen helpers in order to bolster the number of the dedicated army of volunteers who currently help make Meals on Wheels possible. As part of the series the Hairy Bikers took Meals on Wheels on the road.
They organised the world's largest cottage pie, made by the students at Brooklands College, and travelled through the streets of Elmbridge with the pie and finished with a Volunteer pledge event.

The Bikers were helped by advertising company Saatchi X to brand the Meals on Wheels service - they designed a logo to give the service a clear brand identity. This new logo was used on a billboard in Elmbridge to raise awareness of Meals on Wheels in the community.

Towards the end of the filming the Bikers were joined by a raft of celebrities and national organisations to celebrate Meals on Wheels and promote the need for it to continue.  
Robert Moran, Chief Executive of Elmbridge Borough Council said,
"We were delighted when the Hairy Bikers approached the Council to focus their new series around our Meals on Wheels service and to celebrate the work of the Council's staff and volunteers.
 
We have been trying to recruit new volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels to older people in Elmbridge, so to have a national TV programme to help is an added bonus. It was also a pleasure to meet Dave and Si and see their genuine passion for the service."
