Have you heard of The Big Lunch the UK annual get together for neighbours?
The Big Lunch is usually held annually on Sunday 1st June but there is still time to join in and have a little get together in your neighbourhood on another day. Here are some simple steps to get you started.
The Pack is available here. It contains fun stickers, invites, posters, bunting template and competition and lots of tips and ideas, there is even a packet of vegetable seeds to grow food together. In fact the pack is undated so you can organise your get together a different day.
The Big Lunch is funded by Big Lottery who, like Neighbourhood and Home Watch, wants to encourage stronger neighbourhoods where we look out for each other and share more. The idea started with Tim Smit KBE and the folk at the Eden project, who believe the simple first step of sharing lunch together can start to change how people feel as part of their wider community, and we agree!
Paul Selby and Brooklands watchare Big Lunch champions and believe the simple act is making a massive difference to their streets so why not order the pack and float the idea in your local area, they'd love to hear how you get on! ("And so would Tarvinonline" -ED)
